Biography of Richmond B. Millard
Broome County, NY Biographies





RICHMOND B. MILLARD - One of the energetic and progressive young business men of Binghamton, New York, who was born, raised and educated in Broome county, is Richmond B. Millard, a well known automobile dealer. Mr. Millard dates his birth from March 20, 1894, his parents being Stephen C. Millard, a native of Vermont, and a lawyer by profession, who died in 1914, and Helen (Bennett) Millard, also born in Vermont and who is still living.

Richmond B. Millard started out on his business career by securing a position with the G. M. C. Truck Company, and after working for them three years, went West where he remained two years. His next act was to enlist in the United States Regular Navy, and among other places was assigned to duty at Pensacola, Florida, in the Southern District. He was discharged with the rank of chief quartermaster in 1918, and upon returning to civilian life, resumed his business career in the employ of the Heath Oil Company. This lasted until December 25, 1921, when Mr. Millard carried out his ambition to engage in business for himself by opening up as an automobile dealer, specializing in Hudson and Essex cars. During the short time he has been operating in this line, he has found opportunity for sales in a territory covering five counties, and now has one of the largest automobile agencies in Binghamton, requiring the entire ground floor of the building at No. 201 Water street for new cars entirely, and No. 5 Prospect street for used cars and storage. Mr. Millard has been identified with other important concerns here, also, and was at one time president of the Empire State Track Corporation.

Mr. Millard married, in 1916, Jane Wadsworth, of Broome county, and they now have a family of two children: Esther, who was born in 1918, and Richmond B., Jr., who was born in 1922. Mr. and Mrs. Millard are attendants of the Protestant Episcopal church in Binghamton.
