Scope and content

This accrual contains correspondence from family and friends to Jim Ham while he was a student at MIT (1947-1949). There is also a small number of letters from Jim to family members, including three as a child to his mother (1926-1928). One file of memorabilia, photographs and letters relates to his time in the Naval Service at the end of World War II (1944-1945). Finally, there is a certificate from July 1979 that made Ham a lifetime member of the Royal Ontario Museum, shortly before the ROM and the University separated. Ham was President at the time that the two institutions parted ways.
