Alton Glenn Miller


The Glenn Miller Archive is often asked questions about Glenn Miller's family and ancestry. His children Steven and Jonnie Dee have generously invested considerable trust and materials toward the preservation and communication their father's legacy. An important aspect of the Miller Legacy is his actual family and ancestral history. This has often misunderstood or inaccurately portrayed by commentators and the public, so it is with great respect and care that we have undertaken to produce and update the actual Glenn Miller Genealogy. The document includes the family bloodlines of Glenn Miller's father, Lewis Elmer Miller, and his mother, Mattie Lou Cavendar. It is dedicated to Steven Davis Miller and our late Curator Alan Cass, who were devoted to Miller and Cavendar family genealogy. In addition, other members of the Miller family have been great contributors to the Glenn Miller Archive and trusted their collections to us, including Glenn's brother Dr. Elmer Deane Miller, his sister Emma Irene Miller, niece Wynne Miller Bernatschke and nephews Laury Wolfe and Glenn Miller Wolfe. You can learn about their family history here:
