Robert Andrews Millikan was born in the little town of Morrison, Illinois, on March 22, 1868. The second of the six children of the Congregational Minister, Reverend Silas Franklin Millikan and his wife, Mary Jane (Andrews), he grew up in an atmosphere stressing and practising the simple biblical virtues. Under this influence he early acquired the sense of duty, the habit of intellectual honesty, and the power of taking pains which were important factors in his later success.
