Miller & Lux Records

Owning Institution: UC Berkeley, Bancroft Library

About this Collection

The Miller & Lux Records consist primarily of business, farming, administrative, and legal records. Correspondence files, which comprise the major portion of this collection, contain few letters dated prior to 1906, although there are many business, legal, and other documents before that date. Copious and comprehensive records of transactions relating to the acquisitions of property in Oregon, Nevada, and California provide an overview of the company's land sales program and include materials relating to advertising, sales, cancellations, and prices. The day-to-day operations of a cattle conglomerate are represented in detail in the collection, as is Henry Miller's pioneer activity in building irrigation canal systems and defending his water rights in court.
