dated January 31, 1953: Lady Ramanathan Passes away

The Hindu's correspondent in Colombo reported the death of Lady Ramanathan, widow of the late Sir Ponnambalam Ramanathan, at her residence in the campus of the Ramanathan College, Chunnakam, Jaffna on the 31st. She was 83. The Australia-born Britisher, Miss Harrison, came to Ceylon in 1907 and married Sir P. Ramanathan. She became a Hindu, having studied its scriptures deeply. The Honorary Degree of Doctor of Laws was conferred on her by Ceylon University in 1942. Lady Ramanathan wrote several books, including an English version of the Ramayana. She built the Ramanathan College and the Parameswara College, as also two Hindu temples of worship, one in Colombo and the other in Kodaikanal. Her son-in-law, Mr. S. Natesan, was Minister of Posts in Ceylon's Cabinet.
