Charles Gardner Mills (1914-1975) was born in Griffin, Georgia. He was educated at the University of North Carolina, the University of Virginia and the University of Florence, Italy. In the 1950s he lived in Savannah for five years, taught English at Benedictine School and was president of both the Poetry Society of Georgia and the Friends of the Library. While he was living in Savannah, Mills' novel, The Alexandrians, a "best seller," was published.
This collection contains the personal papers, photographs and photographic negatives of Charles Mills. This collection was donated to GHS by Armstrong Atlantic State University.

As a result, only written works directly attributed to Charles Mills are labeled as such. Papers with no obvious source are labeled "no author". Some documents pre and post date the birth and death of Mills. These have been included to honor the original order presented by Armstrong.
