Hugh Aiken Bayne papers

Call Number: MS 68
Scope and Contents

The Hugh A. Bayne Papers consist of three types of material. Boxes 1 and 2 contain printed and typescript documents concerning Bayne's service on international arbitration commissions. Boxes 3 and 4 contain volumes of typescript memoirs with photographs, clippings, and correspondence pasted in. Three scrapbooks, originally catalogued as YYez. 892ba, were added to the papers in June, 1981. The scrapbooks, mainly from Bayne's undergraduate days at Yale, contain newspaper clippings, correspondence, photographs, and memorabilia. These scrapbooks were dismantled for microfilming and when filming was completed the clippings and other deteriorating paper were discarded. The remaining materials are in boxes 5-7, arranged by type.

All of the papers are available on microfilm (MICROFILM HM 81). The materials in boxes 3 and 4 are now restricted, in order to protect them; readers wishing to consult them must use the film.

The papers were given to Yale University Library by Hugh A. Bayne and his estate between 1928-41 and in 1956.

Conditions Governing Access

The entire collection is available on microfilm. Patrons must use HM 81 instead of the originals.
