Administrative history:
Throughout his career, Sir Hugh maintained correspondence or personal relations with former friends, colleagues and acquaintances; in addition, he collected photographs, press-cuttings, published reports or records bearing on people or subjects of interest to him (see note to Item CSAC 40/4/76/A.43). The collected papers thus contained information about the British Army in India, Wellington College, as well as matters immediately connected with Sir Hugh's own life and work.
Sir Hugh had intended to write, during his retirement, an account of his family and its branches, including his own life and times. He had accumulated a great deal of material, drawn up outlines of the work, and completed drafts of some sections, but died before the task was finished.

Biographical Reminiscences  CSAC 40/4/76/D.200 - 208  [n.d.]

Contents:
Beaver collected material, prepared notes, and partly completed drafts for biographical studies of friends and colleagues.
One of his rough notes, headed 'Ready for dictation' (CSAC 40/4/76/D.200) indicates the intended scope of the work:
This is the story of three friendships in my business life. I record them because all three had an impact and two of them a profound effect on my life. All three ended in misunderstanding which at least to me was and still is a matter of great sadness.
It is in each case I hope a fair portrayal of a friendship from which I got much and for which I am most grateful. It is not the whole story because one can only tell of things as one has seen them and that is a one-sided view. But friendship depends on tolerance and that tolerance should I feel out last even the ending of the friendship.
And I write down these accounts because I want to put on record how much I appreciated them, their friendship and their loyalty to myself; and partly because inevitably I must understand how far the fault was my own. They are Sir Alexandler Gibb, Lord Reith and Major A.E.Allnatt; and it so happens that I have recently been asked to give for publication my recollections of the first two - Sir Alexander as a foreword to a new issue of his life and Lord Reith as a contribution to the normal special programme that the BBC has ready for the passing of great men. Here I have expanded these notes, putting in the intimate details which are not for public, "
None of these accounts survive; early correspondence with Sir Alexander Gibb appears in CSAC 40/4/76/D.202, and a small amount of correspondence with Major Allnatt is enclosed with the above manuscript note in CSAC 40/4/76/D.200.
CSAC 40/4/76/D.201 - CSAC 40/4/76/D.206 comprise a considerable amount of material, including personal and official correspondence, concerning Beaver's long association with Reith 1940 - 66.
Beaver also left an account, dated 1964, of his relations with Sir John Anderson (CSAC 40/4/76/D.207) and reminiscences of Sir Winston Churchill, with related printed matter and correspondence (CSAC 40/4/76/D.208).
