Formatted Abstract/Summary
Father Edward Leo Hayes Collection, UQFL2 contains correspondence and manuscript material on literary and historical matters, mostly in Queensland and New South Wales. It also includes personal papers of Father Hayes, relating to his activities as parish priest; bookplates, photographs, realia.

Father Hayes was born in 1889 at Frederickton, New South Wales, and began book collecting at age seven. He commenced studies for the priesthood at St Columbia's College, Springwood, in 1911 and was ordained after further study at St Patrick's, Manly, in 1918. Over the course of 70 years he amassed one of the greatest collections of Australiana, including more than 25,000 volumes, 30,000 manuscript items, 1,500 Indigenous artefacts, maps, stamps, coins, weapons, geological specimens, cattle bells, and a variety of other material. On 19-20 October 1967 a convoy of removal trucks transported eighty large crates and 400 cartons of material to The University of Queensland Library at St Lucia, doubling its holdings on Australian subjects and effectively putting the Library on the map as an institution capable of supporting high-level research in Australian studies.

Additional Notes Letter dated 19 June 1901 addressed to Mr. Stephens. From MM Everitt, Superior Public School, Parramatta South. The letter returns an updated version of Everitt's story titled 'Idyll' on the landing of Captain Cook at Botany Bay in 1770, and appears to answer a number of specific question regarding informants which had been put to her by Stephens in a previous letter.
The updated 'Idyll' and letter from AG Stephens to Mary M Everitt are not held in the Hayes collection.

One of four letters in Hayes collection from Mary M Everitt to AG Stephens, literary editor of the Sydney magazine The Bulletin. The letters were written between 12 June and 10 July 1901 and are mainly concerned with attempts to have published a number of Aboriginal myths and legends, the landing of Captain Cook at Botany Bay in April, 1770 as told to Everitt by Aboriginal people, drawings of cave paintings, lists of Aboriginal words, and other related material. People mentioned in the four letters as the source of Captain Cook's story are mostly Aboriginals of the area to the south and south-west of Sydney, including Mrs Emma Timbery; Granny Giles; Mrs Lizzie Malone; Mrs Clara Phillips (Gungee); Mrs Kate Saunders; Jimmy Lowndes; Robert Racklin; Old Cooman (or Goomung) - Granny Giles' husband and great grandfather of Mrs Timbery; and Takum-mool - Granny Giles' brother.
Mary M Everitt's material was not subsequently published in The Bulletin.
