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.
