Excerpt from “History of the North Country
by Harry F. Landon; Published 1932

Transcribed for internet by Anne M. Cady


The following biography is extracted from the “History of the North Country – A History embracing Jefferson, St. Lawrence, Oswego, Lewis and Franklin Counties, New York” by Harry F. Landon.  This massive history consists of three large volumes with hundreds of short biographies.  As time permits, I will be transcribing the entries with ties to Saint Lawrence County and putting them online. 


Harry Lloyd Mills, M.D. –

One of the most prominent of the younger physicians and surgeons of St. Lawrence County is Dr. Mills, who is associated in practice with his father, Dr. David M. Mills, at Gouverneur.  He was born at Brasie Corners, St. Lawrence County, Nov 28, 1904, the son of Dr. David M. and Grace (Brasie) Mills.  A sketch of Dr. David M. Mills appears in this history.


Harry Lloyd Mills obtained his early education at Oxbow and entered Syracuse University after his graduation from Gouverneur High School in 1923.  He was graduated from the Medical School of Syracuse University in 1930, served as interne during 1930-31 at St. Vincent’s Hospital, Richmond, Staten Island, and since August, 1931, has been associated with his father.


In 1920 Dr. Mills married Miss Nita Burdick, the daughter of Dr. Harry Burdick, who is a leading surgeon of Syracuse.  They have a daughter, Beatrice Silona.


Dr. Mills holds membership in the Episcopal Church and belongs to Theta Alpha and Alpha Kappa Kappa fraternities.  He holds memberships in the St. Lawrence County, New York State and American Medical Associations, and is a member of the staff of Stephen VanDuzee Hospital.
