Tapas Majumdar (1929-2010)

Tapas Majumdar will be remembered by posterity not only for his contributions to the disciplines that he chose to specialise in (viz, economics and education studies) but also as an inspiring teacher and as an extraordinarily compassionate human being.

As head of the Department of Economics in Presidency College during the 1960s, Majumdar played the pivotal role in recruiting a galaxy of bright economists. Under his guidance this brilliant group not only continued the great teaching tradition of the college but also transformed the Economics Department into a place for doing advanced research. The Centre for Economic Studies at Presidency College was born out of these efforts.
