Brown, long-time Professor of Sanskrit at the University of Pennsylvania, and a handful of fellow scholars of India had labored for three decades to establish an American research center in India to carry out a wide array of humanistic and social science studies of the subcontinent. The genesis, development, and history of the Institute are the subjects of this study."
