Harcourt Butler Technological Institute, Kanpur

4.1
The history of HBTI, Kanpur, dates back to 1907 when the Indian Industrial Commission at its Nainital meeting proposed two institutions for engineering — one at Roorkee and the other at Kanpur.

Thus the Government Research Institute, Cawnpore was started in 1920. It was housed in two rooms of what was called Sher Wali Kothi. The old majestic building is still intact at the north-west corner of the Company Bagh crossing, Nawabganj. Dr. Annett was then the principal of the Opium Research Laboratory of which the new institute was an adjunct.

On 25 November 1921, the Governor of the United Provinces, Sir Spencer Harcourt Butler (1869–1938), K.C.S.I., C.I.E., laid the foundation of the present building. It was rechristened Government Technological Institute in 1921.

In 1926, it got the name Harcourt Butler Technological Institute. Its first principal of Indian nationality was Dattatreya Yashwant Athawale (Rao Saheb Rai Bahadur).
