C. F. McLoughlin

  • RC0010
  • Fonds
  • 1886-1967

The fonds consists of 37 letters from Jack Butler Yeats (1871-1957) to McLoughlin. There is also a Christmas card signed by Yeats, and an unsigned, unaddressed post card, possibly from Yeats. The other items in the fonds belonging to McLoughlin are: a poem by Padraic Colum (1881-1972), "The Sea Bird to the Wave", which McLoughlin notes Padraic wrote down for him one night at the Arts Club in 1958 and two manuscripts, one about the Irish troubles in 1916-1921 and the other a collection of Irish proverbs from a social evening at the Club in 1967. The first manuscript is the result of McLoughlin contacting veterans of the troubles and getting them to write down their memoirs in 1966.

There are several items in the fonds that do not appear to have a direct tie to McLoughlin. These items include: a poem, "Sleep Song", by Frederick Robert Higgins (1896-1941), editor, poet, and playwright; a signed Christmas card from James Sullivan Starkey and E. F. Starkey to J. J. Chicester containing a printed poem, "1939" by Seumas O'Sullivan (1879-1958) and signed by O'Sullivan (O'Sullivan was the pseudonym of James Sullivan Starkey); letter from Katharine Tynan (1861-1931), poet and novelist, to Mr. O'Leary; two letters from W. B. Yeats (1865-1939), poet and playwright, one to Sara Allgood and the other to Mr. Farrell. The letter to Mr. Farrell was removed from the library copy of a book and thus did not belong to McLoughlin. The other items in the fonds are all printed: poems on Christmas cards by Donagh MacDonagh (1912-1968), barrister, editor, poet, and playwright; a sermon by The Right Reverend Robert Wyse Jackson, Bishop of Limerick; and an Irish National Theatre Society programme.
