# Sanjoy K. Mitter: A Scholar, a Gentleman, and a Friend

Chapter

## Abstract

Sanjoy Kumar Mitter was born on 9 December 1933 in Calcutta, India. His father, Subodh Chunder Mitter—son of Sir B.C. Mitter, the first Indian member of the Privy Council of Britain—was an electrical engineer educated at University College, London, and the founder of Mitter Industries. His mother, Protiva Mitter, was the daughter of Sir C.C. Ghose, justice of the Calcutta High Court.
