Alfred Dundas Taylor

Alfred Dundas Taylor was born August 30, 1825 in England, son of George Ledwell Taylor (1788-1873), a civil architect to the Admiralty in the UK. Taylor's last published book was The India Directory for the Guidance of Steamers and Sailing Vessels (London: Smith Elder, 1891). He retired as Commander of the Indian Navy and died in England in 1898.

He is alleged to have first proposed the Sethusamudram Shipping Canal Project, circa 1860. No documented historical evidence has yet been adduced to clearly substantiate this popular claim.
