Harrison became interested in fine bookbinding in the 1930's and apprenticed for a time with master bookbinder Hazel Dreis. For more than four decades, her bookbinding skills enabled her to bind and preserve a number of volumes within the Michael and Margaret B. Harrison Western Americana collection. In September, 1990, the preservation department of the General Library of the University of California at Davis was dedicated in her honor.
