Callie Faye Milliken, longtime library director at Abilene Christian, dies

Callie Faye Milliken was known by her closest friends as a woman of wisdom, whose nose could almost always be seen buried in a book. ''She just loved books,'' said Maurita Dietz, colleague and long-time friend. ''She loved all kinds of books.'' Milliken, 87, died Saturday at a Longview nursing home after recently suffering a stroke. She will be dearly missed, said Dietz. Milliken moved from East Texas to Abilene in 1934 to attend Abilene Christian College (now know as Abilene Christian University). After her graduation in 1938, Milliken moved to Weldon where she became a teacher. She moved around several times and taught in locations including Grapeland, Joinerville and Houston. She was also the assistant librarian at Sam Houston State University. She finally joined the ACC staff as assistant professor and director of the library in 1953. Dietz said Millikan came to Abilene to work and retire because she just fell in love with the city after attending classes at ACC. Millikan retired after being a member of ACC's staff for 33 years. Milliken is known for directing the planning and building of ACU's Margaret and Herman Brown Library. ''She loved to travel,'' said Dietz, who frequently traveled with Milliken over the years. ''We went to Vienna and I helped her set up a library at the International Christian College in Vienna.'' Erma Jean Loveland, friend and colleague, said Millikan was a very determined woman and played a major part in making Brown Library what it is today. ''It was her heart and soul,'' she said. ''She always tried to provide materials for students in the most efficient manner as possible. She just loved her job.'' Funeral services will be Wednesday at 10 a.m. at Rader Funeral Home, 1617 Judson Road in Longview.

Continuing her education with the goal of becoming a teacher, Callie earned degrees from Abilene Christian College (later University) and the University of Texas, majoring in English.

Callie served as head librarian of Abilene Christian from 1953-1977. She took the lead in planning a new library building, and in fall of 1970, the Margaret and Herman Brown Library opened. During this time, Callie also earned an advanced masterÕs degree and doctorate in library science from Florida State University. She continued to work as associate director at Abilene Christian in charge of acquisitions and special collections. Beginning in 1984, Dr. Milliken made many trips to International University of Vienna, Austria to coordinate the library there. Retiring from full-time work in 1987, she was honored by having the ACU Library Special Collection named for her. She moved to Longview in 1988 to be near her family and was a member of the Alpine Church of Christ.

Charles Milliken1,2

M, b. circa 1725, d. after 12 May 1785
     Charles Milliken is the founding father (in America) of this researcher's Milliken clan. Various spellings of his last name have been: Millakin, Milligan, Millicon and Millikin.
He was born circa 1725 at Connaught. His birthdate is an approximation. We do know that he came to America as part of the "Great Migration" of Scotch-Irish from the northern region of Ireland, many from the Ulster province. Charles was probably part of the third wave influx of settlers. He may originally have sailed into Philadelphia about 1744 and moved west to Lancaster County. He was the son of Unknown Milliken.2 On 4 June 1745, Charles purchased (by bond) land in Derry Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania from Patrick Hays. He probably met John Lewis shortly thereafter. John had left Ireland about 1729 and had led a great many of immigrants down into the Shenandoah Valley.

John Lewis, Benjamin Borden, Sr. and James Patton had received large grants of land, from Governor William Gooch, in the "Great Valley" region between the Blue Ridge, Shenandoah and Allegheny mountains. They were under instructions to fill the land with settlers.
He married Ann Harbison circa 1746 at Virginia. About 1747 Charles purchased 297 acres of land from Patrick Hay in Augusta County, Virginia. The land was located on the James River just east of Looney's (Luney) Mill Creek. In 1752 Charles bought 60 acres from Col. James Patton at the head of Looney's Creek. He was selected by the court to be a member of a work crew to built a road from his property to that of William Carravan's on 24 November 1753 at Augusta County, Virginia. Sometime around 1760 Charles moved south to Orange County, North Carolina. In 1761 he sold most or all of his land holdings in Virginia. He left a will on 12 May 1785 at Orange County, North Carolina.3 He died after 12 May 1785 at Chatham County, North Carolina.
