History of Cotton College State University (Guwahati)

A prominent public figure of the state, Manick Chandra Barooah strongly advocated the setting up of a college in Guwahati with suitable boarding facilities, as students of the province had to go to Kolkata (Calcutta) for higher studies then. Hence, this was the reason why the journey of higher education in the north eastern region began in 1901.

As per records from the past, in his letter (1899) to the British government, Manick Chandra stated that Assam was the only province without a college and it would be cheaper for people of Upper Assam to stay at Guwahati than in Calcutta (Kolkata).

Hence, on November 3, 1899, the then Assam province Chief Commissioner Sir Henry Cotton made the announcement to establish a college in Assam, the records state.In a meeting, the public here had decided to name the newly established college after the then Chief Commissioner Sir Henry John Stedman Cotton.He had formally declared Cotton College open under Calcutta University at a public meeting here on May 27, 1901.

Prof Fredrick William Sudmersen then arrived at Guwahati on that day to take charge as the first principal of the college.After establishment of Gauhahi University in 1948 as the first university of the province, the affiliation of Cotton College was transferred from Calcutta University to Gauhati University in the same year.
