    Scope & contentAfter Geoff Holman died in December 2011, his widow, Lynn and his children, donated his collection of the remaining Holman Bros. company archives, photographs and the preparatory material for a book to The Mills Archive. Since June 2012, members of the Mills Archive staff and volunteers have catalogued the archive material in the collection, arranged for the bound ledgers to be repaired and conserved, and edited Geoff’s book in order for it to be published on the Mills Archive website. Work has begun on digitising and transcribing the ledgers for information about the millwork. The largest task was to turn Geoff’s preparatory book into an online publication that would create a permanent legacy to the Holman Millwrights.
