Asa Millet MD, elected a resident member of the New England Genealogical Society August 2, 1865. Died at East Bridgewater, Mass., March 21, 1893 in the eightieth year of his age.

Asa fitted for college at Monmouth and Waterville Academics in his native state, and took a partial course in Waterville College (now Colby University), in the class of 1836. After a few years spent in teaching he devoted himself to the study of medicine, graduating from the Medical School of Maine at Bowdoin College in 1842. He began the practice of his profession in Mattapoisett, Mass., moving in 1847 to East Bridgewater. From 1854 to 1862 he resided in Abington, and from 1862 to 1873 in Bridgewater, returning in the latter year to East Bridgewater, where he remained to the close of his life. The whole half century of his professional career was thus spent in the Old Colony, where he was thoroughly known and respected.

He was a member, and at one time a vice-president, of the Massachusetts Medical Society. He belonged also to the Society of the Sons of the American Revolution. Although a man of strong policitical convictions and connected from the first with the republican party, he never help political office except as a member of Governor Andrew's Council in 1865, to which position he was elected by the legislature to fill a vacancy caused by resignation. He served in the army for a short time as contract surgeon in 1861, until sickness compelled him to return home, but as member of the Surgical Aid Corps he made serveral visits to the front during the progress of the war.

_____________________________________________________

Asa, moved to Plymouth County, Mass., and there became eminent as a physician. In the Civil War he was a surgeon with the Union army and was a member of Governor Andrew's council. He devoted years of research to the preparation of a Millet genealogy, which was nearly completed at the time of his death in 1893. To the manuscript of this interesting and important work the writer of this chapter is mainly indebted for his facts.
