About Dorothy Seymour Mills:
Dorothy Seymour Mills was born and raised in Cleveland, attended Fenn College (now Cleveland State University) and earned her Master’s Degree at Mather College of Western Reserve University (now Case Western Reserve University). At Fenn she met Professor Harold Seymour. They were married and collaborated on the first scholarly book of baseball history, Baseball:The Early Years, published in 1960 by Oxford University Press.
Mrs. Mills also collaborated with Professor Seymour on Baseball: The Golden Age and Baseball: The People’s Game. She is the author of A Woman’s Work and Chasing Baseball. The Seymour Medal, created by the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) in honor of the Seymours, has been awarded annually since 1996 to the best book of baseball history or biography. The Dorothy Seymour Mills Lifetime Achievement Award (“The Dorothy”) has been created by SABR’s Women in Baseball Committee to honor “a sustained involvement in women’s baseball or any woman with a longtime involvement in baseball in any fashion”.
