Bradley, Salt Lake City, Utah. ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS BIOGRAPHY: Harris was born in 1914 in Logan, Utah. The son of Academian Franklin S. Harris, he showed an early interest in Geography, declaring to his family at the end of second grade that he was going to become a geographer.[1] He graduated from Brigham Young High School in Provo in 1930. He received a B.A. from Brigham Young University (BYU) in 1933. The valedictorian of his class, Harris became the first Rhodes Scholar from BYU.[2] The scholarship took him to Oxford where he completed a second B.A. as well as a Master's Degree. He also received an M.A. from the London School of Economics before returning to the U.S. He completed his Ph.D. at the University of Chicago in 1940. His dissertation was entitled, "Salt Lake City - a Regional Capital in 1940." After brief stints at Indiana University and the University of Nebraska, Harris was appointed Assistant Professor of Geography at the University of Chicago in 1943. Around this same time he was called into military service with the U.S. Department of State, Office of the Geographer. In Washington he became intrigued by the mystery surrounding the Soviet Union. He started studying Russian and exploring the available cartographic and statistical information about the country. He published his first two works on the Soviet Union in 1945. His early work in this area left him well prepared in the late 1950s when the Soviet Union began opening up to foreigners. By the time of his first visit, he was already a well established and respected expert in the field. Over the course of his career, he made 14 trips to the Soviet Union and played an important role in fostering and promoting collaboration between American and Russian geographers. In addition to his work on the Soviet Union, Harris made several important contributions to the field of American Urban Geography. In particular, in 1945 he wrote "The Nature of Cities" with Edward Ullman. The paper, published in the Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, described the Multiple nuclei model of urban development, which had prophetic relevance for understanding American cities in the later 20th century. This model gives a suggestion as to the possible land use within a city. It is an alternative model to the Concentric zone model and the Sector model. During his professional career Harris held a number of important and prestigious positions including dean of the Division of the Social Sciences at the University of Chicago (1954-1960). He served on the University of Chicago faculty from 1943 to 1984 and then continued as the Samuel N. Harper Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus in Geography until his death in 2003. Source.

Franklin married Frankie Estella Spilsbury on June 18, 1908, in Salt Lake City, Utah. He died on April 18, 1960, in Salt Lake City. Interment, Salt Lake City, Utah. ~ ~ ~ ~ Franklin Stewart Harris and his brother, Dennison Harris (of Benjamin, Utah), came to Brigham Young Academy in 1903. After graduating from Brigham Young University High School in 1904, Franklin was called back to Colonia Juarez to teach science at the Juarez Stake Academy. The deseret lands of Utah, southwest United States, and northern Mexico early presented a challenge to Franklin, and he dreamed of conserving, watering, treating and fertilizing soils for a greater crop yield. Upon his return to BYU he made the acquaintance of and became the assistant to Dr. John A. Widtsoe, director of agriculture. A lasting friendship followed and soil chemistry became a driving force for each of these scholars and teachers. F. S. Harris graduated from BYU in 1907. In this year he courted and won the affections of one of the more popular girls on the campus, Estella Spillsbury of Toquerville, Utah. He often repeated that this conquest was the most significant act of his life. Her vivacious personality pervaded all groups in which she mingled. His life was completely complimented by her gracious charm, friendly attitude toward faculty and students, and easy adjustments to a varying social life, whether in Mexico, Russia, Iran, or diplomatic Washington. Franklin's educational leadership extended from 1907 to 1950, 24 years at BYU and ten years at Utah State Agricultural College (Utah State University). Franklin S. Harris served as president of both Brigham Young University (1921-1945) and the Utah State Agricultural College (1945-1950). ~ ~ ~ ~ FRANKLIN S. HARRIS, B.A., M.A. (Brigham Young), Ph.D. (Cornell). ~ ~ ~ ~ Standing on the campus where as a country boy from Benjamin, Utah, he had dreamed of the future, President Franklin Stewart Harris said on Founder's Day 1923, "Behold the greatest university campus in all the world - in embryo. More students will come, the faculty will be enlarged, new colleges will be added, and there is no end to the improvements which can be made. Truly the campus is the setting of what will undoubtedly be the greatest university in the world, a place to train for leaders." ~ ~ ~ ~ Harris arrived on the BYU campus as president at age 36, armed with a doctorate from Cornell University, a national reputation in agronomy, a love for the arts, and a vision of crafting a great university. In his inaugural address, President Harris outlined an ambitious plan to lead BYU to considerably higher academic levels. Although Brigham Young Academy had granted degrees as early as 1897, had begun awarding four-year degrees in 1900, and had changed its name to reflect university status in 1903, the unaccredited school was still essentially an intermountain denominational college when Harris assumed the presidential helm. In fact, the university had more high school students than college students. Harris was determined to raise the standards of the 46-year-old school, an ambition that remained constant throughout his presidency. ~ ~ ~ ~ Within five years of being president, Harris organized five new colleges--education, arts and sciences, commerce and business, applied science, and fine arts. He also added graduate and research divisions as part of his goal to upgrade the scholarship and academic standing of the university. Wilkinson said Harris' objective was to introduce BYU students, faculty, and trustees to the world of a modern, well-organized university. As a lover of the arts, he encouraged the first college of fine arts in the West, which was established at BYU.
