Custodial history

[Source - Chloe Rushovich for FHYA using Cambridge University Library website, 2017: The FHYA selection of the Haddon Papers encompasses all of the material relating to the trip Alfred Cort Haddon took with the British Association for the Advancement of Science (BAAS) to South Africa in 1905. During this trip, Haddon collected ethnographic material, as well as created and accumulated a number of textual materials. Both the ethnographic and textual material were placed at the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology (MAA) at the University of Cambridge. The ethnographic material remains in the MAA, while the textual material was deposited into the Cambridge University Library in late 1968. The Haddon Papers, including this material, are housed in the Department Manuscripts and University Archives at the Special Collections at the Cambridge University Library.]

Scope and content

[Source - Cambridge University Library website, 2017: The Haddon Papers are housed in the Manuscripts and University Archives within the Special Collections of the Cambridge University Library. The collection includes items relating to Haddon’s life and expeditions, as well as lecture notes, professional correspondence, and a large collection of offprints. The FHYA selection of the Haddon papers focuses on material about Haddon and his involvement in the 1905 Natal leg of the British Association for the Advancement of Science tour of southern Africa. The FHYA ordered this material according to the arrangement set out by the CUL whereby each series is named ‘Haddon Papers’ followed by an identifying number demarcating different sets of material. Within these series, there are ‘files’, in which ‘items’ are housed.]
