Colonel Brown Cambridge School for Indian Boys was founded in March 1926, by Col.and Mrs. W.Brown, for Indian boys. It is an English Medium Residential School and is open to all boys irrespective of caste, creed or social status. The school ranks high amongst educational Institutions in India. It attracts students not only from all parts of India, but also from parents living abroad. An Irish man of repute, with an enviable record of distinguished service both in the sphere of education and the British Army, Col.William Brown retired from the Army but did not want to leave India, the country he had adopted, served and grown to love passionately.
Col.William Brown and Mrs. Brown were childless but loved children and during tours and postings ranging from North West Frontier Province to the South found time during their tenure at a particular spot to help children of Indian origin.
A man of vision, he decided to devote his life to his country of adoption in the field of education. What irked Col.Brown was the attitude of the then current rulers in the disparity and discrimination practiced upon the Indian population. He realised it as a fact that the British gentleman and some of his Colleagues had taken upon themselves to promote education, which was of selective nature i.e. privileged education and related facilities for their own and fast emerging Anglo Indian community.
