Midnapore College - MC Midnapore - MC

This institution was founded as a Zilla School in 1834 and converted into a Degree College (High School) in 1873. Since Government orders of the 16th October, 1877, changing the nomenclature of Government schools it has been called the “Midnapore College” (C.U. Calendar, 1889, P. 260). From different records and sources it is obvious that Midnapore College has a long glorious history of its foundation and existence. It developed from a private school established in 1833, which later became Midnapore Zilla School. It was upgraded to Entrance Standard in 1857, the year of the memorable Sepoy Mutiny in Indian History. F.A. Course was introduced in 1873 and that year Calcutta University granted affiliation to the college as a Degree College outside Calcutta. The College became a First Grade Degree Science College in 1924. In 1926 Honours affiliation in Mathematics and Physics was obtained. In the third decade of the last Century Midnapore College played a vital role in the Indian Freedom Movement then raging throughout Bengal. In the early thirties three British Magistrates, Mr. Paddie, Mr. Dauglas and Mr. Burge who were later assassinated in three consecutive years 1931, 1932 and 1933 recognised Midnapore College as a centre for the intensification of Indian Freedom Movement and “the breeding ground of freedom fighters”. The then government took all possible measures for a ruthless suppression of the Movement. Needless to say, the teachers and the students of the College had to bear the brunt of Government atrocities. Three teachers of the College, namely, Tarak Das Ghosh, Thakopada Biswas and Binoy Jiban Ghosh were removed from services for their alleged association with the revolutionaries. In 1935 Principal K.C. Chakraborty was compelled to resign. In 1936 the Government stopped grant to the College. High spirited promising young students of this College, namely, Sahid Dinesh Gupta, Sahid Captain Bengal Volunteers, Sahid Mrigendranath Dutta, Sahid Brajakishore Chakraborty and Sahid Nirmal Jiban Ghosh bled and sacrificed their lives for the sake of the Country. They became martyrs in 1933-34. The College is inseparably associated with the Indian Freedom Movement. Dinesh Gupta, a student of this college, one of the trio of Binoy, Badal, Dinesh, participated in storming the Writers' Buildings as a part of the Freedom Movement. The freedom fighter Haricharan Mukherjee became the Principal of the College at that time. The College came out of crisis under the able stewardship of Principal B.D. Banerjee (1935-50). After independence Midnapore College became Government Sponsored College in 1956. In view of the ever-increasing need for Higher Education Calcutta University granted Honours affiliation in Economics (1951), Chemistry (1953), English (1958), History (1958), Philosophy (1959), Political Science (1961), Physiology (1969).The college shows its initiative in the spread of education. In 1959 when it was found that the Commerce course had been the priority demand, the college took an effort to introduce commerce course in the curriculum.
