‘Lewis Miller’s People:’ New book portrays 700-plus York countians in the 1800s

Donald Shelley, executive director of the Henry Ford Museum, said the 1966 publication of 19th-century York countian Lewis Miller’s work would provide a service for students and historians in opening up a new field of study in American social life, customs, arts and the like.
