Several accounts of Harris' life and career contributions were of help in preparing this note. I benefited particularly from a memorial written by Harris' long-time colleague, Marvin Mikesell, for the Annals of the Association of American Geographers (Mikesell 2004); a note on Harris' influence on Eurasian Geography and Economics and its predecessor publications by one of that journal' contributing editors (Bond 2004); a discussion of Harris' influence on urban geography by a former colleague (Berry 2004); and the opening chapter of a Festschrift published in Harris' honor (Rogers 1984). Parts of the ensuing sections on “Harris as Scholar” and “Harris as Disciplinary and Institutional Citizen” were based on a short memorial essay I wrote for Ubique, the newsletter of the American Geographical Society (Murphy 2004).
