Biography of Dr. Frederick H. Mills


Mills, Frederick Hubbell, M. D., Buffalo, son of William A. and Lodisa A. (Hubbell) Mills, was born on a farm in Leon, Cattaraugus county, N. Y., January 4, 1869. His ancestors originally emigrated, it is supposed, from England to Holland, whence they came to Connecticut in the seventeenth century. The change of residence caused a change of name to Van den Mullen, which was again changed to Mills by an act of the Connecticut Legislature. Dr. Mills attended the district schools of his native town until he was thirteen years of age, when his parents removed to Randolph, where he entered Chamberlain Institute, from which he was graduated in 1888. He then taught for one year at the Thomas Orphan Asylum at Versailles. In 1889 he entered Princeton College and was graduated therefrom, in a special course in chemistry and biology, in 1891. In the following autumn he became a student and lecturer on analytical chemistry at the medical department of Niagara University, having charge of the laboratory. In 1893 he resigned and entered Jefferson Medical College, Philadelphia, from which he was graduated as M. D. in 1894, receiving the gold medal in surgery for the best essay and original research. After practicing about six months in Leon he returned to Buffalo, where he has since followed his profession, being also connected with the medical department of Niagara University, first as demonstrator of analytical chemistry for two years and since then as lecturer on medical chemistry. He was also assistant to State Chemist Dr. John A. Miller for one year. Dr. Mills is a Mason, and a member of the Lake Erie Medical Society and the American Whig Society of Princeton. December 30, 1896, he married Adelaine, daughter of William S. Robbins, of Buffalo and later of Chicago.
