HISTORY OF THE INSTITUTION
Pitty Theagaraya Chetty Senior and Sir Pitty Theagaraya Chetty Junior,
founded the North Madras Hindu Secondary School, in 1897 to cater to the
educational needs of the local population. For nearly 25 years, the school was
nurtured under the munificence of the acclaimed philanthropists-the PITTY
BROTHERS. After the demise of the Pitty brothers, the school was renamed as the
Theagaraya Chetty Hindu Secondary School.
In 1931, the Pitty Family, with the approval of High Court of Madras,
rightly vested the management of the School into the broader hands of a
committee constituted for the purpose. The first Correspondent of the school was
the coveted personality DEWAN BAHADUR PT. KÜMARASWAMY CHETTY.
Subsequently, he was succeeded by his brother PT. CHENGALVARAYA
CHETTY, in 1942. The School flourished well and soared to greater heights in the
web of education and by June 1947, the students strength fittingly rose to the
laudable figure of 1600-a no mcan achievement in an environment otherwise
engulfed with traders and artisans . The lofty ideals of the Noble souls started
yielding fruitful results.
Fittingly, the Management realized the need to raise the school into a
college to provide higher education to the residents of North Madras – a luxury
offered at hand’s reach, which even the affluent could not easily dream of, in those
days.
The hand of prodigy prevailed on Sri. P. Ramaswamy Chetty (grandson
of senior PT.)-a talented and visionary icon of the Pammy Family (a family closely
knitted to Pittys) while serving as a Special Engineer in the then Corporation of
Madras, spearheading himself as a member with the Managing Committee,
worked relentlessly, almost single handed, despite his fragile health, towards the
establishment of an institution of higher learning – a solatum for the weaker and
underprivileged sections of the society.
DEPARTMENT OF TELUGU
The Department of Telugu in Sir Theagaraya College has a glorious
past having many of the reputed Telugu scholars in its faculty.
