These documents, which cover the years 1883-1940, consist primarily of correspondence from John Vincent Miller (1873-1940) to his older sister, Mina Miller Edison. Other recipients include John's siblings, Theodore and Grace Miller, and his mother, Mary Valinda Miller. There is also one letter by Florence Nichols Miller, whom John married in March 1921. In addition to the correspondence, an obituary for John appears at the end.
Additional correspondence by John V. Miller relating to the death of his brother Theodore, who was fatally wounded during the Battle of San Juan Hill in June 1898, can be found in Miller, Theodore W. -- Death and Funeral.
