Sir Auckland Colvin, K.C.M.G., C.I.E. (Lieutenant Governor of the N. W. Provinces)
while functioning as Lieutenant Governor of Avadh and Agra during the year 1889,
conceived the idea of a school with the object of imparting education to the wards
of the court and sons of the Taluqdars' of Avadh. The 'wards' class, founded in
1884, formed the nucleus for the establishment of the Taluqdars' College.
