Baldwin Boys’ High School was established in 1880, by a grant of money from John Baldwin, Ohio, USA, and was founded by the Methodist Episcopal Church. The school was also known as the Episcopal Methodist School and initially accepted boys and girls. In the late 1920s the school was managed by a Board of Governors, of which the Resident Bishop of the Bangalore Area, the then Bishop B.T. Badley, D.D. was Chairman.
