Owing to the diverse provenance of the papers and the lack of an inherent filing system, an artificial order or arrangement has been imposed on this archive.
Immediate Source of Acquisition
When OCSEB merged with UCLES in 1995, papers were divided between Cambridge University Library and the emerging UCLES Archive.
Many of the files in this collection appear to have been created first by A. E. E. McKenzie and then added to by H. F. King in their roles as Secretaries of the Cambridge side of the Board.
