I suppose that one issue may be that Harris achieved a sort of status as the quintessentially "American composer"......a symphonic mid-period Copland Grin

Piston is a drier, more academic but more consistent composer. Schuman, Diamond and Mennin are more obviously "modern" than Harris or the Nordic, Sibelian Howard Hanson.
