In 1991, Daniel Prikryl and James Bruseth of the Texas Historical Commission created this catalog in order to document artifacts in the Robert King Harris collection that originated from sites located on the east fork of the Trinity River in northcentral Texas, as well as several sites along the Red River in northeast Texas. Harris was an avocational archaeologist who participated in numerous excavations in Texas and amassed a collection of more than 100,000 artifacts, ranging in time from the paleo-American to the historic. The collection in part represents Harris's own field work but also incorporates material of other workers and includes material from other states and countries. The artifacts are now among the holdings of the Department of Anthropology at the National Museum of Natural History.
