Haniel Long (pronounced han-eye-el, with the accent on the middle syllable) was born in Rangoon, Burma, in 1888, and brought to the United States at age three. He spent his childhood in the Pittsburgh area. Long attended Exeter and Harvard, where he began to show his talent as a writer of "romantic verse and vigorous prose."

In 1910, after spending a year writing for a New York newspaper, he attained an appointment as English instructor at the Carnegie Institute of Technology, later known as Carnegie Mellon University. He became head of the department ten years later. In 1929, Long, his wife Alice, and son Anton moved to Santa Fe, where Haniel and Alice spent the rest of their lives. Long wrote for newspapers and magazines to support himself and his family. In 1937-1938, Long edited the literary page of the New Mexico Sentinel , published by Cyrus McCormick.

Haniel Long was a dominant force in organizing the Writers' Editions in 1932, with Alice Corbin Henderson, Witter Bynner, Paul Horgan, Oliver LaFarge, and Mary Austin to cooperatively publish each others books. Writers' Editions published 17 books, until a paper shortage during World War II forced them to cease publication.

Long died in 1956. His greatest literary products were Interlinear to Cabeza de Vaca ; Power within Us ; Malinche ; Pi?on Country ; If He Can Make Her So ; and Spring Returns (published posthumously).

Haniel Long, who achieved fame as a poet, as did his wife, Alice Lavinia Long, was born in Rangoon, Burma in 1888. Upon the completion of his education with degrees from Exeter and Harvard, he became a professor of literature at Carnegie Institute of Technology in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, holding that position for 20 years. Eventually, he, his wife and his young son Anton moved to New Mexico. His life-long love affair with the pinon-studded southwest began then, and his major contributions of poetry that followed occurred during his residence in Santa Fe. He died on October 17, 1956, three days after his wife had passed away.

A testimonial to his love of the Southwest is reflected in his Southwest Poems, with a preface reading: "What the States whispered under the train when I went from Minneapolis to Santa Fe". Here is the last verse:

New Mexico You will have to go with red earth, as red earth goes with red rock, as red rock goes with red pine, before you can go with me. You will have to go with the pinyon, You will have to go with the bluebird, You will have to go with the sun. I belong to the unyielding ones; You must yield to me first.
