How to get the maximum value in a data table column?

I need to retrieve the maximum value from a specfic column in a data table using IronPython. I know that I can iterate through the rows to find it, but my data table has >100,000 rows and will continue increasing in size so iterating through all the rows will become increasingly inefficient. 

Is there a method that will allow for efficiently capturing the min/max value in a data table column?
