John Peabody Harrington papers: Supplemental material on Southern California/Basin, circa 1907-circa 1957

National Anthropological Archives
Microfilm and digital surrogates of microfilm are available. See Volume 8, reel 3, which also contains materials from other subseries. Only original documents created by Harrington, his collaborators and field assistants, or notes given to him were microfilmed.

Electronic inventory available. Consult with archivist. For a comprehensive description of these materials, see "The papers of John Peabody Harrington in the Smithsonian Institution, 1907-1957, Volume 8, A guide to: Notes and Writings on Special Linguistic Studies," edited by Elaine L. Mills, Louise G. Mills, and Ann J. Brickfield. http://anthropology.si.edu/naa/harrington/pdf/mf_guides/jp%20harrington%20guide%20-%20volume%208.pdf

This subseries of the Notes and writings on special linguistic studies series contains material that supplement John P. Harrington's Southern California/Basin field notes. There are materials on the Chumash, Gabrielino, Cahuilla, Luiseno/Juaneno, Chemehuevi, Diegueno, and Washo.

His Chumash files consist of mixed Barbareno biographical and linguistic notes, notes on the rehearing of Harrington's Ineseno dictionary, the beginning of a translation from the 1920s as well as some miscellaneous Barbareno vocabulary, a copy of Scouler's Obispeno vocabulary, and notes referring to the informant for H. W. Henshaw's Santa Rosa vocabulary (B.A.E. ms. 296). The Gabrielino section contains data on placenames which Harrington extracted from Reid's vocabulary in the California Farmer and from Alfred L. Kroeber's article "Notes on the Shoshonean Dialects of Southern California." There are also ten miscellaneous slips illustrating various points of grammar with simple sentences. There are five pages of Cahuilla vocabulary from the multilingual informant Adan Castillo. For Luiseno/Juaneno there are two pages of information on Rancho Neguil. From the early group of Chemehuevi notes is a page numbered 129, a missing sheet from the set of field notes which Harrington's wife Carobeth obtained from Annie Laird (See Chemehuevi subseries in Southern California/Basin series). There are also notes on geographical information. Diegueno material consists of the record of a placename trip which Harrington made with Angel Quilpe to a location identified as "Los Templos," probably around 1925. Notes on the site include textual descriptions and sketch maps with indications of mileage and photographs taken. Other places mentioned en route are Salt Creek, Salt Canyon, San Pedro, and Aguaje de Martinez. The bulk of Washo file consists of field notes which Harrington obtained from Verna Porterfield on February 27, 1915. He recorded a few notes on the phonetics of the language, a basic vocabulary (natural, anatomical, and relationship terms, and words for animals and numbers), and several simple sentences. Information from Mr. Bailey which includes references to Carson Indian School in Stewart, Nevada, and give summaries of two myths. In addition, there are five typed pages of Paiute, Washo, and Shoshoni ornithological terms which Harrington extracted from the record of the U.S. Geological Exploration of the Fortieth Parallel, 1877.

The subseries also contains general and miscellaneous materials, notes on collections of artifacts, records relating to music, notes from conversations, and notes on secondary sources.

Miscellaneous materials on southern California were accumulated during the 1920s. They include a sketchy outline for a proposed study of California Indian placenames. His rough notes for the write-up contain summaries of early fieldwork (1912 -1921) from which he planned to extract data, ideas for illustrations, lists of "things to do," and comments on plans for future work to complete the project. Additional miscellany includes a printed caption with Mohave and Chemehuevi names (photograph not located and intended use not known), rough tracings of several maps, and notes regarding letters from Dr. Arthur De Jacoby and Elmer J. Dawson.

His notes on artifacts include information from George Heye and others regarding artifacts from the Burton Mound site in Santa Barbara, California, which Harrington had helped to excavate. There is also information which Harrington obtained during discussions with a Mr. James who collected a variety of artifacts at Salisbury Canyon, Oak Spring burial, Round Corral Cave, and other locations near his home. There are several references to photographs which Harrington made of the objects; these are on file in the N.A.A. The third group of notes was made during a visit to the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology. Almost all of the references are to specimens which Dr. Stephen Bowers collected in 1885 from San Martin Cave in Los Angeles County, California.

There are three types of material relating to music in California. There is an undated form letter from Charles F. Lummis enclosing a prospectus of a proposal to publish "Spanish Songs of Old California." This is followed notes on Indian music and jazz. which Harrington probably obtained from Frances Densmore. The bulk of the file contains records relating to a proposal for collecting and publishing California Indian songs. The work was to be undertaken by ethnomusicologist Helen H. Roberts with the assistance of Harrington under the auspices of the Community Arts Association of Santa Barbara, California, and the resulting book was to be published by Yale University Press.

The section of notes from conversations contains brief records from a number of interviews with colleagues and nonlinguistic informants. They range in date from 1925 to 1936.
