_ ucinda Alfreda Sewer Millin
was born on the island of St. John
on August 26, 1892 to Alberta
and Phillip Sewer. She received
her early education on her native
island and was later sent to
Antigua, West Indies for further
formal training at the Moravian
Teachers Training College.


In 1922 she married Allan Alexander Millln. The couple raised three children,
lHnry A. Mllin, the Lieutenant Governor of the Virgin Islands, Dorothy Millln
Penn, Deputy Commissioner of health for Management, and Agnes Millin, a teacher
in the Virgin Islands school system.

Her teaching career started with the Moravians in 1910 and continued with the
Naval Academy and the Virgin Islands government until 1923 when she established
her own private school, the Lucinda Millin School. For the next 35 years she edu.
cated numerous Virgin Islanders from kindergarten through 6th grade. She is re-
membered as a teacher who was a "warm person though a strict disciplinarian,"
who "never dropped a student from school because his parents couldn't pay his
tuition," and whose students "could read, write and spell" when they came
out.

In the mid.flfties Lucinda Millin turned her attention to politics. She became the
first woman elected to the Virgin Islands Legislature in 1954 and served five con*
secutive terms, retiring in 1964. During her tenure as a legislator, she served on the
Health and Welfare Committee and fought vigorously for improved living condi.
tions for the elderly. Her abn was the establishment ofa home for the aged where
those whose relatives had no time to care for them could be comfortably housed.
In recognition of her concern for the elderly, the Lucinda Millin Home for the
Aged was later named in her honor. Active in national politics as well, Mrs. Million
served as Democratic National Committeewoman from 1958 to 1964.

Mrs. Millin was a founding member of the Women's League of the Virgin Islands,
an organization which grew out of a concern for fostering better hospital care.
She was also active in the Community Chest and the St. Thomas Youth Committee.

She Is survived by her son, Henry, daughters, Dorothy and Agnes, six grandchildren,
four greatgrandchildren and other relatives.
May she rest in peace.
