Being a Kannadiga, I'm ashamed to say that I didn't know about this great historian, a chance encounter on Mysore gazette took me to an author who wrote 400 years of Wodeyar History.

Sincere tribute to #HayavadanRao, a multifaceted personality whose contribution to the building
of modern Mysore is as significant as his pioneering work in reconstructing the history of ancient Karnataka.

Hayavadana Rao was born on 10 July 1865 in Hosur, after graduating in history, Rao studied law and economics and joined the Government Museum, Madras as a curator.
Rao worked as a curator till his retirement and compiled "The Indian Biographical Dictionary". Rao was a polyglot and was fluent in English, Latin, French, German, Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Marathi and Sanskrit.

He was a member of the ‘Royal Anthropological Institute’ London
