In 1914, the University of Madras appointed Sakkottai Krishnaswamy Aiyangar to the chair of the Department of Indian History and Archaeology. Aiyangar headed the Department till 1929. At about the same time, Aiyangar took over a struggling periodical called 'Journal of Indian History' which was started by Shafaat Ahmed Khan in 1921. Aiyangar faced financial difficulties in the beginning but rescued the journal by persuading the University of Kerala to take over the magazine. By the time, the Kerala University had taken over the magazine Aiyangar had already established the journal as one of the premium history magazines in the world.
