Index to the Warren Fahey Oral History & Folklore Collection at the National Library of Australia


ABOUT THE NLA COLLECTION

This is a full list of what I have deposited in the National Library of Australia – I gifted it to the nation under the Cultural Gifts Program. There are several sections and this is the index.

 

GUIDE TO THE PAPERS OF WARREN FAHEY AM.

 

The collection is housed in 10 boxes in the National Library of Australia (NLA) in Canberra.

This collection is the first deposit from Warren Fahey and is to be followed by his folklore collection transcriptions and notes, his specialised library and additional correspondence files.

 

The collection covers Warren Fahey’s involvement in:

 

* The Australian folk revival as a performer, ABC radio scriptwriter and presenter and arts administrator
* The Australian record industry as a specialist retailer (Folkways Music), record label owner (Larrikin Records), music publisher (Larrikin Music) and as producer of over 550 recordings of Australian music;
* Australian folkore as a collector and author.
* Personal materials as a writer, public speaker and citizen.

 

The collection has attempted to place like-minded documents together however, because of the cross-over of subjects (ie performer and folklorist), readers are advised to explore laterally.
