Frank Gurnee Millard was born March 1, 1897 in Corunna, Michigan. He received his primary and high school education in Corunna. Subsequently he attended the University of Michigan, from which he received a bachelor's degree in 1914 and a law degree in 1916.

Millard practiced law in Flint. In addition he was active in Republican Party affairs. He chaired the Genesee County Republican Committee from 1922 until 1924, and again in 1940. From 1948 until 1950 he sat on the Republican State Central Committee.

Millard was elected the state's attorney general in 1950, a post he held until 1954. In 1955 he went to Washington where he was appointed general counsel of the Department of the Army. In 1961 he returned to Michigan and was elected a delegate to the state constitutional convention. At the convention he chaired the Committee on Emerging Problems.

Millard's career in law and politics was interrupted by repeated military service. During the First World War he saw action as an artillery lieutenant in France. In 1921 he helped organize the Michigan National Guard, which he remained active in until 1952. Millard also served in the armed forces during World War II. Frank Millard died in November 1976.
