Born in St. Louis in 1924, John Mulanphy Harney was a true academic and an astute collector. He studied first at Princeton University and then at Harvard’s Fine Arts program at the renowned Fogg Museum. His interest in history eventually led him to travel all over the Western world.

After serving in the Navy during World War II, he became involved in his family’s design firm Warfield Inc., which opened its doors in 1912. Mr. Harney eventually took over the business and spent the rest of his life furthering his knowledge of antiques and design.
