Remembering our first 'First Lady'

Frances Hilliard Millican

On December 28th, 2009 the UCF community lost its matriarch, Frances Hilliard Millican. More than just the wife of Florida Technological University’s founding president, Mrs. Millican was a driving force in the creation and development of what is now known as the University of Central Florida. These images give a glimpse into the life of a woman who was a devoted wife, dear friend, founder, supporter and silent champion for a university who will be forever grateful and will deeply miss her.

Many of these photos are courtesy of the Millican family as part of the University Photograph Collection held in the UCF Special Collections and University Archives.
