Scope and Contents:
This subseries of the Plains series consists of John P. Harrington's research on the Caddo, Pawnee, Wichita, and Comanche languages. Harrington accumulated a total of forty-two pages of original notes on Caddo, Pawnee, and Wichita. The information was taken in 1918 and 1921 in Anadarko, Oklahoma, and in Washington, D.C. Although linguistically unrelated, six pages of Comanche terms, also collected in 1918 in Anadarko, follow the Caddoan material.

The Caddo vocabulary consists of six pages of animal and miscellaneous terms obtained from Joe Edman on June 22,1918, at Anadarko, Oklahoma. A two-page copy of the animal terms (former B.A.E. ms. 4136) were given by Harrington to J. R. Swanton, who later deposited them in the B.A.E. archives naming Harrington as the collector (n.d.). The Pawnee section contains semantically arranged vocabulary of only a few words in each of ten categories, and fifteen pages of grammatical notes. Correspondence indicates that the information was recorded in Washington on February 18 to 21,1918, from James Murie, who was not paid for his time. Murie also provided additional random information in January 1921. There are also short typed extracts from Sapir and Boas. The Wichita files consists of six pages of grammatical notes emphasizing the pronouns and thirty-four cards dealing with numerals were given by Harrington to J. R. Swanton, who later deposited them in the B.A.E. archives (n.d.) (former B.A.E. ms. 4136pt.). He also recorded twenty-one pages of grammar and vocabulary from Eben Rose and John Haddon, June 1918, at Anadarko, Oklahoma. There is also a small selection of secondary Wichita material from Swanton.

The Comanche notes comprise six pages of random terms from Herbert Yernipcut taken on June 21, 1918, at Anadarko, Oklahoma, and three pages of miscellaneous vocabulary. There are two pages of names of Comanche Indians whose portraits were in one of DeLancey Gill's albums, obtained from a person identified only as Millet, and dated May 10, 1924. A letter dated May 26, 1924, from Comanche Albert Attock requests pictures of Chief Quanah Parker and Peyote Chief Blind Man.

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.
