Introduction

Born in Worcester, Massachusetts, in 1919, John Michael Hayes began his career as a writer of features for newspapers. His talent for writing radio shows financed his education at Massachusetts State College. Shortly after graduation, he moved to Hollywood where he found work writing for Lucille Ball's radio program My Favorite Husband. He then became interested in radio plays and wrote for such series as Suspense and The Adventures of Sam Spade. Success with these series led to a position with Universal Studios and a career writing both screen stories and screenplays.

Hayes's credits writing screenplays incude Thunder Bay (1953), Rear Window (1955), Peyton Place (1957), Butterfield 8 (1960), The Carpetbaggers (1964), and Nevada Smith (1966). Hayes stopped writing screenplays, but continued his executive position with Avco. His work during this period relates to television projects. He then returned to writing screenplays, although most were not produced. Hayes currently resides in Hanover, New Hampshire, where he is involved in the Film Studies Program at Dartmouth College.

The Papers of John Michael Hayes, a gift of Mr. Hayes in 1990, consist primarily of screenplays, scripts, correspondence, and clippings relating to the part of his career in Hollywood from 1952 to 1968. The collection includes photographs, correspondence with colleagues and studios, clippings, and drafts and final shooting scripts of many of his major films. The collection is housed in 3 cartons occupying 4.5 linear feet of shelf.

There are no restrictions on the use of the collection.
