W. G. A. MILLAR, Pittsburgh

This is really a bookkeeping number for a residence George Elmslie did for his brother-in-law in the summer of 1907. There was some little correspondence and some minor details at this time, and I stopped in Pittsburgh to see this home on one of my trips to the Crane Estate at Woods Hole.

George designed some very interesting furniture for it, and his sister Louis stenciled in polychrome charming curtains from George's designs. Millar was an executive in the American Bridge Company. He was killed in an accident near his Canadian summer home, in the summer of 1938.
