  • History & Memorable Moments

After the Revolt of 1857, Indian luminaries of that period saw a pressing need to modernise its education system to fight against British imperialism. Stalwarts in the Indian independence movements such as Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Vishnushastri Chiplunkar, G G Agarkar and Mahadev Namjoshi put in their collective efforts in the formation of a modern school for Indians. The result was The New English School in 1857. Boosted by its success, the Deccan Education Society was formed in 1884 and a year later the Fergusson College was started. The land was donated for Rupee 1 on a 99 year lease by Shirole, the erstwhile Patil of Bhamburde (Shivaji Nagar). The college was inaugurated by William Wordsworth, the grandson of the poet William Wordsworth and principal of Bombay's Elphinstone College. Other stalwarts such as R G Bhandarkar and M G Ranade played an important part in the construction of the college. [1]

The British allowed the college to remain autonomous, giving it a free hand in education. The college on its part maintained a completely apolitical stance, choosing to rescind itself of politics, a policy that continues up to this day. [1]
