Ogden Livingston Mills (August 23, 1884 – October 11, 1937) was an American businessman and politician.
The son of Ogden Mills and Ruth T. Livingston, he had twin sisters Beatrice Mills and Gladys Livingston Mills. Odgen L. Mills was the grandson of Darius O. Mills, who bequeathed to his son a fortune in excess of $40 million amassed in banking, railroad and mining ventures on the Pacific Coast, Mills was born in Newport, Rhode Island. He graduated Harvard University in 1904 and Harvard Law School in 1907. He became a lawyer in New York in 1908.
Mills married Margaret Rutherfurd, step daughter of William Kissam Vanderbilt, in France in 1911. They divorced in May, 1920. She would subsequently marry and divorce Sir Paul Dukes (1922–1929), Prince Charles Michael Joachim Napoleon Murat (1929–1939), F.L. Sprague in 1939, before remarrying Prince Charles a second time in 1945.
He was a delegate to the Republican National Conventions in 1912, 1916, and 1920.
He was president of the New York State Tax Association and a businessman until he was elected as a Republican to the 67th, 68th and 69th United States Congresses from New York's 17th District, serving from 1921 to 1927. On September 3, 1924, he married his second wife, Mrs. Dorothy Randolph Fell, divorced first wife of the banker John R. Fell.
He was appointed Undersecretary of the Treasury by President Calvin Coolidge, serving under Secretary Andrew W. Mellon. In this capacity he served from 1927 until 1932 when he was appointed Secretary of the Treasury by Herbert Hoover following Mellon's resignation to serve as U.S. Ambassador to the Court of St. James. Mills served until March 3, 1933.
After leaving the Treasury Department, Mills was highly critical of Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal policies. He continued to be active in business, and published his views in two books, What of Tomorrow in 1935 and The Seventeen Million in 1937. The latter was his attempt to provide guidance for those who voted against the New Deal in 1936.
Thoroughbred horse racing
Ogden Mills' sister, Gladys Livingston Mills, married Henry Carnegie Phipps of the prominent Phipps family of Pittsburgh. Ogden and Gladys owned Wheatley Stable, a Thoroughbred horse racing and breeding operation that met with great success and was the foundation of the Phipps racing dynasty. Their stable owned and bred Seabiscuit as well as Bold Ruler who became a leading sire in the United States and whose offspring includes the great Secretariat. Ogden Mills also owned Kantar who won the 1928 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, the most prestigious Thoroughbred horse race in France. Ogden Mills' other sister, Beatrice, married Bernard Forbes, 8th Earl of Granard, whose granddaughter Lady Georgina Forbes has revitalised showjumping in Ireland.
Both he and his nephew Ogden Phipps inherited his fathers passion for collecting French antiques and works of art. He died October 11, 1937 at age 53.
