He was a member of the faculty of the University of California until 1919, when he joined the Carnegie Institution of Washington, which enabled him to follow his prime interest, the development of his extensive research program.

The Harvey Monroe Hall Natural Area is a federally administered Research Natural Area located in California’s Inyo National Forest, on the eastern border of Yosemite National Park. The region is approximately four miles long, 2.75 miles wide, and includes 3,883 acres of wilderness. The region's Research Natural Area program was established to provide protection for a network of federal lands that would be used primarily for research, baseline ecological information, and the maintenance of biological diversity.
