In his studies of American Indians, John P. Harrington became one of the most prolific collectors of anthropological sound recordings, a fact obscured by problems relating to access. Brief historical data and an accompanying chart broadly sketch the nature of the collection and show how it is divided among the Smithsonian Institution, Library of Congress, and National Archives and Records Administration. The greater part of the collection is at the Smithsonian and presents several difficulties, including damage, problems with identifications, and problems relating to re-recordings. Cooperative efforts among organizations and individuals to overcome some of these problems is suggested.
