Also included are course notes from several of John Miller's history courses taught at South Dakota State University.

Series 1. Brookings County research.

The Brookings County research is composed of research gathered by John E. Miller from the Donald D. Parker Collection held at the Center for Western Studies, Augustana College, Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Donald D. Parker was Head of the History Department at South Dakota State University from 1943-1965. Folders consist mainly of research on early Brookings County, South Dakota and covers the years from circa 1870-1930.

Series 2. Hubert B. Mathews and Hubert Jean Mathieu research.

Hubert B. Mathews was born in Eagle Corners, Wisconsin in 1868. He came with his family to settle at Willow Lakes in Dakota Territory. He entered Dakota Agricultural College in Brookings in 1888. He graduated in 1892 and received his master's degree in 1899. He accepted a position on the college staff in 1893. He became head of the physics Department, and was the first acting dean of the Division of Engineering. He was Vice President at South Dakota State College. H.B. Mathews coordinated much of the building work on the campus during the first half of the 20th century. Mathews Hall, a dormitory on campus, is named in his honor. Professor Mathews served twice as the Mayor of Brookings from 1907-1910 and again from 1915-1917.

Hubert Jean Mathieu, son of Hubert B. Mathews, graduated from South Dakota State College in 1919. He then studied painting under Harvey Dunn. He became a very successful painter. He is known for his Our Democracy editorial cartoons that appeared in such magazines as the Saturday Evening Post, Colliers, Ladies Home Journal, McCall’s and Cosmopolitan in the 1940s. He changed the spelling of the family name back to the original French spelling of Mathieu, supposedly for art reasons. He used the name "Mat" as his signature on many of his works.

Folders consist of material on both Hubert B. Mathews and Hubert J. Mathieu. Because of their relationship as father and son and their similar names, researchers should look at each folder carefully to ensure the correct information is gathered as material for both men is interfiled. Included are drawing of the campus of South Dakota State University by Hubert J. Mathieu as well as several of the Our Democracy editorial cartoons. The notes file was compiled by John E. Miller and includes a notebook and several homemade note cards. The photograph file consists only of one photocopied page of three photographs. These photographs are of both Hubert B. and Hubert J.

Some items of note include an official program and souvenir banner commemorating the visit of President John F. Kennedy to St. Cloud, Minnesota in 1962.
