- Collection: Center for Archival Collections
The Samuel McClain Papers consist of approximately .3 linear ft. of Civil War era documents, dating from 1864, consisting of the correspondence and diary of Samuel McClain during his service with the 144th O.V.I., including his imprisonment in various Confederate prisons.
The collection was loaned to the Center for Archival Collections for microfilming and copying through the cooperation of David Ferner and Douglas Decker, May-July 1992. This register was prepared by Marilyn Levinson, Curator of Manuscripts, and Steve Charter, Reference Archivist, Center for Archival Collections, May-July, 1992, with revisions in February 1997. No restrictions exist on the use of this collection.
The Miller Family Papers consist of materials relating directly to the William H. Miller family of Port Clinton, Ohio, but within the collection some papers of both the McRitchie and Mackey families are included. The McRitchie and Mackey families are related by marriage, as are the Mackey and Miller families. The materials are divided by record group and chronologically within the record groups when possible. The Papers date inclusively from 1828 to 1978 and include correspondence, diaries, legal and financial papers, printed materials, scrapbook material, photographs, and maps.
The Miller Family Papers were donated to the Center for Archival Collections by John Belknap, executor of the William H. Miller estate, on August 18, 1992, with additional Civil War letters of Wilson S. Miller transferred in April 2011 from the Tennessee State Library and Archives and in May 2011 through the cooperation of Elizabeth Smith-Holmes. No restrictions exist on the use of this collection. Duplication is permitted for the purposes of preservation and research. The collection was processed and register prepared in December 1992 by Jay Smith and Janice Estey, graduate students in History 656 (Archives Administration) at Bowling Green State University, and was revised by Marilyn Levinson, Curator of Manuscripts in April 1993 and August 2011.
