M.R. Harrington

Heye, George G. (George Gustav), 1874-1957  Search this

Archival materials
Biographical / Historical:
M. R. Harrington (1882-1971) was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan, on July 6, 1882, to Rose Martha Smith Harrington and Mark Walrod Harrington, astronomer, meteorologist, and then director of the University of Michigan's Detroit Observatory. The family later lived in Washington DC; Seattle, Washington; and Mount Vernon, New York. Harrington's early interest in Indians and the discoveries of ancient sites and artifacts near his home in New York led him to F. W. Putnam of the American Museum of Natural History. While still a teenager, Harrington worked for Putnam, excavating sites around New York City. He received his bachelor's and master's degrees in anthropology from Columbia University in New York, writing his 1908 master's thesis on Iroquois archaeology.

Harrington met and worked for George Gustav Heye in collecting ethnological and archaeological artifacts even before Heye transformed his extensive collection into the Museum of the American Indian. In February 1916, Harrington came to Fulton (Hempstead County) to lead an archaeological expedition in the Red River valley for the newly formed museum. Harrington's team explored Caddo mound and village sites in Hempstead, Howard, and Garland counties. Harrington then published descriptions of the sites, interpreted sequences of building and mound construction, and illustrated representative artifacts in Certain Caddo Sites in Arkansas. Harrington's work in northwest Arkansas began after the Museum of the American Indian purchased a collection from W. C. Barnard of Missouri, including Indian basketry and other organic objects preserved by the unusually arid conditions of some Ozark Mountain rock shelters. Harrington directed an expedition to the area for the museum in 1922 and 1923. Harrington published an article on this work in American Anthropologist in 1924, but his book on the subject, The Ozark Bluff-Dwellers, was not published until 1960. From 1919 to 1928, Harrington also led expeditions in Tennessee, Nevada, and Texas for the Museum of the American Indian before moving to Los Angeles, California, to become the Director of Research and later curator of the Southwest Museum. He focused his archaeological investigations on Nevada and California for the remainder of his career. In 1956, Harrington was awarded an honorary doctorate from Occidental College in Los Angeles. M. R. Harrington died on June 30, 1971, in Los Angeles. He is buried in San Fernando Mission Cemetery, Mission Hills, California.
