MILLARD, Harrison, musician, born in Boston, Massachusetts, 27 November, 1829. He was educated at public schools in his native city. In May, 1861, he was appointed 1st lieutenant in the 19th United States infantry, and served during the civil war as aide-de-camp, division commissary, and division inspector, on the staffs of Generals Lovell H. Rousseau. William S Rosecrans, and Innis H. Palmer. While with the Army of the Cumberland he was wounded at Chickamauga, 19 September, 1863, and soon afterward resigned from the army. He then settled in New York city, where he was appointed in 1864 to a place in the custom-house, and remained there until 1885. Meanwhile he has devoted his leisure to musical composition, producing many songs and several masses. His ability in this direction has been conspicuous, and his efforts have tended toward giving character and dignity to American song literature, going far toward placing them on a level with similar German productions. His best-known songs are "Waiting," "When the Tide comes in," "Viva L'America, Under the Daisies," and "Say not Farewell."
