Residency School  

1870-1880: The idea of founding a college exclusively for the training of the sons of Chiefs in Central India was first conceived by General Sir Henry Daly who, soon after his appointment as Agent to the Governor-General in Central India in 1869, impressed on the Chiefs the desirability of suitably educating their sons. His efforts soon bore fruit and in 1870 some Kumars joined the Indore Residency School which was then located in the building to the east of the Indore Residency Post Office.  

A further step forward in this direction was taken in 1874 when the Government of India began to evince greater interest and called for a report on the Indore Residency School and the arrangements existing for the education of the sons of Chiefs.

 

 In 1875 Lord Northbrook paid a visit to Indore and personally investigated the facilities for education that then existed, and gave a public assurance that the Indore Residency School would be raised to the status of a College for which the Government of India would appoint and finance a Principal. In addition to his duties as the head of the Indore Residency College, the Principal was to guide the education of the sons and relatives of Chiefs attending the College and have general supervision over schools in Malwa. On 17th April 1876 a separate class for the sons of chiefs, their sardars and Jagirdars was formed and Mr Aberigh Mackay was later appointed Principal of the Indore Residency College in December the same year. In 1878 a boarding house was constructed as well as a bungalow for the residence of the Principal.
