The idea of starting a university here was first mooted by Raja Sir Mohammad Ali Mohammad Khan, Khan Bahadur, K.C.I.E. of Mahmudabad. Who contributed an article to the columns of “The Pioneer” urging the foundation of university. A little later Sir Harcourt Butler, K.C.S.I., K.C.I.E, was appointed Lieutenant-Governor of the United Provinces. His well-known interest in all matters under his jurisdiction, specially in matters educational, gave fresh life and vigour to the proposal.
A discussion followed, and it was resolved that University should be a Unitary, Teaching, and Residential university of the kind recommended by the Calcutta University Mission, 1919. It should consist of Faculties of Arts, including Oriental Studies, Science, Medicine, Law, etc. These sub-committees met during the months of November and December, 1919, and January 1920.
their proceedings were considered and discussed, and the reports of five of the sub-committees were, subject to certain amendments, confirmed. The question of incorporation of the Medical College in the university, however, was for the time being left open for expression of opinion. At the close of the Conference donations of one lakh each from the Raja of Mahmudabad and Jahangirabad were announced. For more about university please click here
