Naming part of Rosmead Place after Musaeus Higgins

Musaeus Higgins, the founder of Musaeus College, was an eminent educationist, who did a valuable service especially in uplifting women’s education in this country.

The school founded by her 103 years back, Musaeus College is on Rosmead Place. Hence, as a tribute to the great lady, I would suggest that the section of Rosmead Place leading from Dr. C. W. W. Kannangara Mawatha up to Wijerama Mawatha, be named Musaeus Higgins Avenue (Musaeus Higgins Mawatha).

The government and the Colombo Municipal Council should proceed to do so without delay as it is something that should have been done long ago.
