About Hashing and Hare & Hounds



Sometime in the latter part of 1998 I was asked if I had any articles about hashing which weren't from an “incestuous” point of view (i.e., hashers writing about hashing). As a result I went digging through my files and found that I had a fairly good collection (about 20 articles) dating back some 10 years.

It came as a blinding flash of the obvious that these articles should be in a convenient location on the Web as a resource for hashers everywhere. Thus the call went out for additional articles and this archive was born in January 1999 with contributions from hashers around the world.

This is a “living” archive, intended to grow as older articles are unearthed and new articles published. If you have an article about hashing or hare and hounds from a “mainstream” publication please share the wealth and send it on to for incorporation into the archive.


Simply because the articles in the archive are from established and respected publications does not mean that they are free from factual error, particularly as it pertains to the origins of the hash. So please note that the hash was not started by; a Naval Detachment, British Army Officers, beer-bellied Australians, or colonial civil servants, nor did the founders frequent an Indonesian or Chinese Club, or a bar named the Hash House. (For an accurate description of how the hash began and got its name, see the HHH Press Kit).

Now, that said, please enjoy. There are many a good story here... HASHING | HARE & HOUNDS
