From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Theodore Beck (1859 – 2 September 1899, Simla[1]) was a British educationalist working for the British Raj in India, who was invited by Sir Syed Ahmed Khan to serve as the first principal of the Muhammadan Anglo-Oriental College in Aligarh, which would later evolve into the Aligarh Muslim University.

Beck was educated at the University of London and Trinity College, Cambridge. He gained his B.A. in 1883, and was appointed Principal of MAO that year, aged only 24.[1]
