Sir Richard Temple, 1st Baronet (1826-1902) was an administrator in British India and a politician. 'Temple was destined to be an outstanding representative of the 'Punjab school' of Indian administration. He was made resident at Hyderabad in April 1867, foreign secretary in the central government in January 1868, and financial member of council from April 1868 to April 1874. Temple achieved the distinction of governing Bombay-to which he was appointed in April 1877-as well as Bengal.

'One cannot help seeing,' he wrote, 'a new mental force springing up in Indian politics, which must add to our already numerous anxieties: Western education acted upon important elements of the population, such as the Maratha Brahmans in the Bombay presidency, whose disaffection lay close to the surface.' He was accessible and conciliatory to educated Indians, and later endorsed Lord Ripon's extension of local self-government: 'some risk must be borne,' he wrote. [Yakushi T29a. Kuloy & Imaeda 10039. Handley p. 921.]
