Tyrrell Historical Library Digital Collections

About this collection

This collection contains photographs from the Millers’ personal photograph albums. These pictures depict their family and friends in various locations, including on cruise vacations in the Mediterranean, at the beach, in San Antonio, in Lake Charles, Louisiana, in Navasota, in Honolulu, and at home in Beaumont. The pictures span a long period of time, from approximately 1909 to 1973, and reveal a fascinating portrait of life in southeast Texas in the twentieth century. The collection also holds holiday season greeting cards from Oscar Eldridges, the Stern family, the Goodman family, and the Hagan family, in addition to personal correspondence between family members. This correspondence includes a set of letters from Bert Miller to his parents, sent while he was at summer camp in Wisconsin in 1920, and a letter from Charles Chinski to R. C. Miller, sent while he was overseas in the army during World War I. The collection also has an invitation to the wedding of R. C. Miller and Byrd Goodman, and a rice bag from the Tyrrell Rice Milling Company.
