Joining Melbourne for the 1892 VFA season, Henry "Harry" Graham finished third in the league's goalkicking with 42 that year. He found more fame as an Australian test cricketer, remaining the only Australian to score hundreds in his first innings against England home and away. Graham toured England in both 1893 and 1896, missing the 1893 season due to his cricket commitments. The stress of year round cricket greatly affected his football career.

Graham made a brief comeback to play VFL football in 1900 but it was short lived, heading to Mt. William in July, where gold had been discovered a month earlier. After that year he left the MCC and played cricket for Carlton.

In around 1904 he moved to New Zealand and became a high school cricket coach. In his later years Graham was gripped with alcoholism and mental illness and he was committed to an asylum near Dunedin in 1907 where he remained until his death.

A J. Graham played in 1892. It's not known if they were related.

No Graham played in the first half of 1893 and only one in the second half, it's not clear which Graham this was. Due to his tour of England it was probably J. Graham. Both Grahams played again in 1894 but not in 1895.

May have gone to New Zealand as early as 1896.
