John Sullivan, a British administrator, played a crucial role in introducing tea cultivation in the Nilgiris hills. In 1834, the Tea Committee was formed in India with a focus on Assam and its surrounding regions.  He also played a significant role in the development of the Nilgiris district in Tamil Nadu, India. Sullivan’s efforts led to the establishment of Udhagamandalam (Ooty) as a popular hill station and his contributions are widely recognized in the region.
