Hugh Huggett first arrived at St Stithians as a student teacher under the renowned David Brindley. An account of his first arrival is held by the Archive. He retired from the College in 2002 but continued to teach until c.2019.
Hugh Huggett's papers are held by the Archive but have not yet been added to AtoM.
The following tribute was paid to Hugh Huggett by Dave McGaw in the Stythian 2001, p.9:
Hugh Huggett arrived in 1969 to take up a post teaching English, and later became Head of the English Department for many years. His career at Saints indicates the wide variety of interests of this man: Master- in-Charge of Hockey for 20 years; Southern Transvaal Hockey Committee Chairman, Manager of the Transvaal Schools' Side; member of the South African Schools' Hockey Committee; Cricket coach of the 2nd XI from 1969 to 1982.Hugh organised Hockey tours to England in 1985 and 19§7; spent a year at York University and studied Literature there in 1984; was the manager of the Dukes for a number of years and has been a keen trout fisherman. His lively antics in the staff room will be sadly missed. We wish him well in his well-deserved retirement.
Account written by Hugh Huggett whilst on the staff of the BC. It is understood that he met with someone who had encountered the record of the ride which was tracked to Kingsmead College.
