Main Building of The Doon School

The Doon School (informally Doon School or Doon) is a boys-only private boarding school in Dehradun, Uttarakhand, India founded in 1935 by Satish Ranjan Das, a Calcutta lawyer.[1] The founders foresaw a school modelled on the British public school, but alive to Indian ambitions and desires.[1] The school's first headmaster, Englishman Arthur E. Foot, had spent some nine years as science master at Eton College, England, and returned to England soon after India's independence.[2]

Admission in the school is based on a competitive examination and an interview.[3][4][5] Every year in January and April, the school admits pupils aged 13 in Grade 7 (known as D-form) and aged 14 in Grade 8 (C-form) respectively. Doon remains a boys-only school despite continued pressure from political leaders, including the then President Pratibha Patil in 2010, to become coeducational.[6][7] However, girl students are admitted in case they are wards of staff working at the school.[8] Old boys of The Doon School are commonly known as Doscos.[9] Although the total number of Doscos is relatively small (estimated at 5,000 since the school was founded in 1935), they include some of India's prominent politicians, government officials and business leaders.[10] The best known alumnus is former Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.

Sources[edit]

The class years of the alumni are sourced principally from the following:

  • The Dosco Record is a book of short biographies, similar to what may be found in a Who's Who, which was first produced by J.A.K. Martyn who deliberately modeled it on the Harrow Record. (Martyn had been a schoolmaster at Harrow School before helping A.E. Foot start The Doon School.) As a consequence, alumni are listed in the year in which they joined Doon, rather than the year in which they graduated; Martyn believed that this would make it easier for Doscos to look up their friends. The book is updated every 8 years or so, and is published by the The Doon School Old Boys Society ("DSOBS") and distributed only to alumni. It includes biographical information about every Dosco (even people like Sanjay Gandhi who was expelled before completing his studies); it also highlights family connections between Doscos such as whether a particular Dosco was the son of another Dosco, or married the sister or daughter of another Dosco.
  • The Rose Bowl is a periodic newsletter that contains alumni news, obituaries, reminiscences, etc. It is produced by the DSOBS and distributed by post to all alumni; a PDF version is also sent by email to alumni.
  • The Doon School Register is published, every few years, by the DSOBS. It includes the contact details of every Dosco; deceased alumni are noted as such. Also included are the small number of "Associate Members" (honorary members) of The Doon School Old Boys: for the most part these include former teachers; also included are people such as Salim Ali who had been frequent visitors to Doon and were considered to be part of the Dosco fraternity.
  • Doon, The Story of a School, edited by Sumer Singh, published by the Indian Public Schools Society 1985. This (somewhat slim) book was distributed to alumni and contains essays, reminiscences, and stories about the founding of the Doon School.
  • The Doon School -- Sixty Years On, edited by Pushpinder Singh Chopra, published by the DSOBS in October 1996. This book is similar in many respects to Doon The Story of a School, but much larger.
