Chasing Voices: John Peabody Harrington & the Language Revitalization Movement

When linguistic and anthropologist John Peabody Harrington died in 1961 at the age of 77, few understood the significance of his work. Harrington was an eccentric, paranoid, and obsessively driven anthropologist whose life became dedicated to preserving Native America's dying languages. Reclusive and secretive, he worked tirelessly 18-hour days crisscrossing the American West recording the last speakers of America's indigenous languages.

Daniel Golding graduated Cum Laude from San Francisco State University receiving a BA in Film Production and a minor in American Indian Studies.
