Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Waterhouse-Mills Family Papers is comprised of photographs of members of both the Waterhouse and Mills families, and two letter books and a diary written by three members of those families.
The Waterhouse and Mills families were joined together through the marriage of Leof Mills to George B. Waterhouse in the late 1880s. The Waterhouse family was originally from Long Island, New York, and the Mills family had been living in Chicago, Illinois when Leof and George married. The Mills family owned property in Illinois, Minnesota and Alabama in the late 1800s, while the Waterhouse family primarily owned property in New York.
