Scope and Contents:
This subseries of John P. Harrington's Notes and writings on special linguistic studies series contains a mixture of miscellaneous material not easily sorted into one of the other subseries.

The bulk of the material is in a file of unsorted notes, most which were derived from secondary sources. Included are notes in unidentified languages or in multiple languages. A few pages are dated but most are not. Some of the data may have been used for drafting responses to B.A.E. inquiries or as preliminary notes for papers on various subjects.

The mouthmaps section consists of a file of roughly drawn charts and related notes on the phonetics of various languages. Data are included for English, French, German, Spanish, and several other world languages. Most of the information was drawn from secondary sources, although the data on the Navajo were excerpted from Harrington's own field notes.

Notes on grammatical terminology consist largely of a slipfile which was probably compiled by Harrington around 1918 in preparation for writing a grammar. A number of slips are in the hand of Carobeth T. Harrington. Many of the terms listed were extracted from the published works of Edward Sapir and Alfred L. Kroeber, particularly from the former's writings on Southern Paiute and the Na-dene languages. There are also comments from discussions which Harrington had with Frachtenberg, Michelson, Hewitt, Wright, and Searles. The slipfile is followed by a few miscellaneous pages of information obtained from Tuttle in the 1920s and later.

There is also a carbon copy of a packet of information on anthropometry which Harrington sent to David B. Rogers in December 1926 and a handwritten draft of the same. He evidently compiled the file during discussions with a physical anthropologist. It includes lists of the basic skeletal measurements with brief explanations and references to published works on the subject. There is also a sample chart used for documenting cataloged specimens at the Peabody Museum.

Harrington also collected what appears to be a series of lecture notes. Neither the author, the date, nor the forum for presentation are specified. One section makes comparisons between the cultures of the Chukchee and the Eskimo. Many small drawings are interspersed throughout the text. The second section consists of discussions on native cultures of the Pacific Coast of North America, from California north to the McKenzie and Yukon River areas. The remaining sets of lectures were found with the heading "American Anthropology." These treat various groups of North and Central America.

Collection Citation:
John Peabody Harrington papers, National Anthropological Archives, Smithsonian Institution
The preferred citation for the Harrington Papers will reference the actual location within the collection, i.e. Box 172, Alaska/Northwest Coast, Papers of John Peabody Harrington, National Anthropological Archives, Smithsonian Institution.

However, as the NAA understands the need to cite phrases or vocabulary on specific pages, a citation referencing the microfilmed papers is acceptable. Please note that the page numbering of the PDF version of the Harrington microfilm does not directly correlate to the analog microfilm frame numbers. If it is necessary to cite the microfilmed papers, please refer to the specific page number of the PDF version, as in: Papers of John Peabody Harrington, Microfilm: MF 7, R34 page 42.
