Scope and content
This collection holds mainly family photographs and slides of travel undertaken by Joan Elizabeth Everest [JE]. She was born on 5/9/1916, the only child of Eric H.H. Everest and Kate Elizabeth (Toi) Scott-Miller. Her father's sister was the actress Barbara Everest, and Mount Everest was named after her ancestor Sir George Everest (1790-1866) Surveyor-General of India. JE was also cousin to J.E.B. Hill (MP), their mothers being sisters.

Since John Hill and JE shared the same maternal grand-parents, there is some duplication of photographs of relatives in the two collections which UEA holds.

On 1/2/51 JE married Henry John Anthony Millachip. Material, mainly photographic, relating to Millachip's service in the Middle East is also included.

JE lived in Malaya, Kenya and England. She died in May 1996.
