Hartley Alexander stated that the real world lies at a deeper level than matter, and we are evidently immortal beings. His main interest was in ways of expressing these truths and it was this which made the study of mythology important to him. He contended that the much-revered world of science is constructed from the most primitive and least telling of vital symbols and that our trust, where insight into reality is at stake, should be placed in those vital symbols which are richest in meaning.
Hartley Alexander was an honorary member of the American Institute of Architects. He was also the first president of the Southwestern Archaeological Federation.
Physical Characteristics: Alexander was of medium height and build, with a large and impressive head, dominated by a broad, high forehead.
