Overview and metadata sections

Miller, Florence G. (Florence Geehr)

Edward Y. Miller was a U.S. Army captain stationed in the Philippines in the first part of the 20th century; Florence G. Miller was his wife.

The collection consists of writings, correspondence, a diary (1904-1907), photographs, and printed matter of Miller, wife of Captain Edward Y. Miller of the U.S. Army. The collection reflects their lives while stationed in the Philippines and includes several autograph manuscripts of articles written by Miller, including an article about the Batac Indians of Palawan Province where the Millers were stationed part of the time and one about a trip en route to Manila (1900). There are letters by Miller to her sisters and various friends describing life in the Philippines and letters to her and her husband by John T. Clark, Treasurer of Palawan. Also included are notebooks (1907-1908) containing descriptions of the Malay States and Java, photographs of the Tagbanuas, the Batac Indians, and the Thualig Penal Settlement, and a diary in which Miller noted her day-to-day life in the Philippines. In addition, the collection contains references to the Province of Paragua of which Captain Miller served as secretary and treasurer. A binder, containing 200 captioned scans of photographs (1907-1908) Edward took in the Philippines and Java, is included, and CDs containing the scans (at 300 dpi, from the original glass negatives) are available.
