The collection is divided into two series: I. Harvard Business School Teaching Files, 1957-2002 and II. Harvard Business School Administration and Program Files, 1962-2003. The subseries within these series are grouped according to the original order assigned by the creator. Teaching files are collected by course title or program area (where they are known) and are arranged chronologically within subseries. Administrative records are grouped according to the programs and events in which Hayes played an administrative role.
In addition to his teaching and research, Professor Hayes held a number of senior administrative positions at HBS, including Productions and Operations Management Area Head, Process, Analysis & Control Program Head, and Senior Associate Dean for Faculty Planning and Development and actively participated in academic committees. In these roles, he contributed to molding the curriculum for the MBA program, particularly through his work on the MBA Leadership and Learning committee. Hayes also collected documentation on the history of the teaching and research mission of HBS which guided his vision for continuing innovation in education. The HBS Seventy-Fifth Anniversary Colloquium, which Hayes helped organize in 1984, brought together business education leaders to celebrate the history of HBS while also looking to the future of educating business students. He contributed to the global mission of HBS as well, living and conducting research in both Europe and Asia. His leadership in developing of HBS's Asia-Pacific Research Office, which opened in Hong Kong in 1998, stands as a significant achievement in international business education. Professor Hayes remains active at HBS as the Philip Caldwell Professor of Business Administration, Emeritus.
