Abstract

This paper first tackles the development of ethnological research beginning with Maksimilijan Vrhovac and ending with the founding of the Yugoslav Academy of Sciences and Arts in 1866, when the scientific study of folk life was institutionalised. It mentions the work of Antun Radić as the editor-in-chief of the Zbornik za narodni život i običaje Južnih Slavena (Collection of Stories about Folk Life and Customs of the South Slavs). Radić is further the author of the Osnova za sabiranje i proučavanje građe o narodnom životu (Foundation for Collecting and Studying Material on Folk Life), a list of instructions for scholars in order to collect folklore material in a unique way. Nikola Novaković, farmer from Staro Selo near Štefanje, was one of the collectors of folklore material, who wrote following Radić’s instructions. Novaković started his cooperation with Radić and continued it with Dragutin Boranić. The manuscripts were finalised in 1910. Since Novaković wrote nothing about himself in the manuscripts, we owe the knowledge regarding his life to the letters he sent to Boranić, and which are in the safekeeping at the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts. These letters, together with memories of people from Staro Selo, form the basis both for writing this paper and for conducting the study of his life and work.
