Research notes

In 1967 the University of Queensland received an extensive collection of items from Father Leo Hayes, including manuscripts and books. The bequest of around 100,000 items also includes ethnographic material, which is held at the Anthropology Museum.

“On 26 October 1967 at 3pm a ceremony took place in the Darnell Art Gallery at the St Lucia campus. Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Sir Fred Schonell, accepted the material on behalf of the University” [One Man's Gift: The Father Leo Hayes Collection, UQ Library website; Fryer Folio Dec 2007, Vol 2 #2,].
