John P. Harrington's financial reports and the few dated field notes indicate that he worked at Jemez intermittently between September 1909 and September 1910. Harrington worked primarily with Juan Pedro Coloque and Cristino Yeppa, but the names of others appear in Harrington's expense accounts. One specific session with Coloque took place at the U.S. Indian School in Santa Fe, New Mexico, on September 26, 1909. The local postmaster, L. Miller (or possibly C. Miller), a young man of about eighteen years, provided what sparse nonlinguistic information the notes contain.
This subseries of the Southwest series contains Harrington's Jemez research. There is an assortment of notes on vocabulary and grammar, with some ethnographic content as well. Some of the information was provided by Cristino Yeppa, and Juan Pedro Coloque gave placename information (September 26, 1909). The material includes such categories as clans, relationship terms, body parts, material culture, and phenomena. In addition, there are several sketches of figures and houses in color (artist unidentified), a rough map, and nonlinguistic information from L. Miller. Several hunting stories were recorded in Jemez and English. There is also a translation of the Lord's Prayer. The main body of Jemez material consists of two boxes of slips containing a broad mixture of vocabulary, grammar, and sentences, with some general ethnographic information included. The random nature of the notes precludes a specific arrangement. More than half the notes were hand copied by Miss Druel and the copies follow the order of Harrington's original slips. "E" and "S" are mentioned infrequently as sources. A portion of the notes were part of former B.A.E. MS 4679. The subseries also contains census records for Jemez Pueblo that Harrington copied from an unidentified source. Some are copied into a notebook, but the most substantive material is found on annotated pages with detailed ethnographic and linguistic information. Harrington added the individuals' Indian names with translations into English, and tied together family relationships. Field notes indicate that he accumulated this information prior to March 9, 1910.
