Dr. A. Lakshmanaswami Mudaliar, Vice-Chancellor of the Madras University, while laying the foundation-stone of the new building for the Stella Maris College at “The Cloister” in the Cathedral Road, Madras, and also declaring open the newly constructed hostel on June 6, paid a tribute to the efforts of the missionaries in promoting the cause of women’s education, particularly the notable contribution made by the Stella Maris College. Dr. Mudaliar expressed the hope that the ideals which had always made women in India a subject of noteworthy study by other nations would be preserved and propagated, particularly by those passing through the portals of great educational institutions like the Stella Maris College.
