Harrington moved to Carmel, California in 1911.[1] Although retired, she occasionally filled in for preachers at the local church.[2] Hamilton had an interest in local politics and in 1916 ran for election to the Board of City Trustees, but lost.[3] In 1918, Harrington spoke on the topic of “The Old New Year,” an event for the Carmel Club of Arts and Crafts.[4] Harrington studied at the Carmel Summer School of Art and in 1920 contributed a work entitled A Southern Slope to the 14th Annual Exhibition of the Arts and Crafts Club.[5] It is possible that Harrington studied under William Merritt Chase as he established his summer school in Carmel in 1914.[1] By 1920, Harrington had become the recording secretary of the Carmel Arts and Crafts Club.[2]
