Pliny Earle Goddard (1869–1928), after a Quaker education and missionary work among the Hupa of northern California, turned to anthropology and was at the AMNH until his death. While his invalid wife and children lived in Connecticut, he had a long term relationship with Gladys Reichard (1893–1955). Reichard was from a Pennsylvania Dutch family, and taught from 1923 at Barnard College, the female side of Columbia, and assumed Herman Karl Haeberlin's devotion to Boas.
