Born in Maine, Goddard received a seminary education and came to California as a missionary in 1897. While at Hupa in northwestern California, Goddard renewed an interest in languages and in 1900 entered the University as a graduate student in linguistics under the tutelage of President Benjamin Ide Wheeler. He completed his Ph. D. in 1904, the first in linguistics the University bestowed. Wheeler secured a position of Goddard as Instructor in the newly-founded Department of Anthropology in 1901, where he remained until 1909.
