College History

History

In 1862, the Church Missionary Society (CMS, established 1799), one of the pioneering missionary organizations, felt an immediate need for establishing a college for higher education, as a consequence of which, Calcutta saw the birth of a new College in December, 1864 in a rented house at 25, Sookea Street (now Kailash Bose Street). The official date of birth of the �Cathedral Mission College� is January 19, 1865. The College moved from Sookea Street to 12, Old College Square or new 22, Mirzapore Street (now Surya Sen Street) in May, 1867. Rev. J. Barton was hailed as the chief founder and the first Principal of the College. In July 1908 the College was shifted to its present site. Under the leadership of W.E.S. Holland, the College was raised to the standard of a degree College, affiliated to the University of Calcutta in 1914. he College adopted its present name, St. Paul�s Cathedral Mission College, in the same year. After receiving its affiliation as a �First Arts College� of the Calcutta University, it began its odyssey with 193 students and 6 teaching staff. The College touched another milestone when it undertook the teaching of pure sciences upto the Intermediate standard in 1922. The CMS having withdrawn in 1947, the responsibility of the College was taken over by the �Diocese of Calcutta� of the Church of India, Pakistan, Burma and Ceylon. All land, buildings in use and occupation of the College are administered by Calcutta Diocesan Trust Association (Private), on behalf of the Diocese of Calcutta, the College being the sole beneficiary thereof. The College stepped into its �second Century� on January 25, 1965, when it celebrated 100 years of its existence.
