The Calcutta Review was established in May, 1844, by Sir John Kaye, who was attached to the Corps of Bengal Artillery and was also the Editor of the notable Calcutta daily, Bengal Hurkara. As per the University of Calcutta's website, "The target audience clearly was the emerging English-educated Bengali middle class".
