Harington, a physician, was mayor of Bath, England, in 1793, and founded the Harmonic Society there.

"A tablet was erected to his memory in Bath Abbey, on which is a curious mathematical figure highly suggestive of a proposition in Euclid, but which is really a design showing the ratios of the vibration numbers in the various intervals of the major scale."

Lightwood, p. 358
