Scope and content

This small series relate to Ham’s role as President. Most of the series contains Ham’s personal notes and recollections with regard to personnel, meetings on University planning, research, finances, as well as meetings with senior administrative officers such as the Vice-Provost. There is also some correspondence, memos and copies of reports that have been annotated by Ham as well as records relating to the presidential retreat in 1980.

Also included in this series are files relating to the running of 93 Highland, the President’s residence. An events and receptions logbook was maintained throughout his tenure and there are files on household accounts and one personnel file. It is evident from these records that his wife Mary was intricately involved in managing the house and organising events.
