Miss Harriet James was well-known in Salem as a teacher of dance, manners and deportment at Hamilton Hall and other locations in town for nearly sixty years, beginning in 1918. More than two dozen of her students went on to perform in national and international dance companies. Many older Salemites can attest to the verity of Miss James' claim that she was "a holy terror on deportment," according to Bonnie Hurd Smith in her book, Salem Women's Heritage Trail.
