William J. Miller - July 5, 1912 - March 26, 1989

William Miller was an editorial writer for Life magazine and for the New York Herald Tribune; he also wrote political books (in the days when there weren't a hundred such books published weekly ... in the days, in other words, when quality counted).  He had his photo taken with President Johnson; the latter inscribed it, autographed it, and gave it to William Miller.

William's wife, Anna, was esteemed by no less than Adlai Stevenson!

The Millers, whom I never met, are buried down the road from where I'm living.  These pictures hang on the wall of the home of one of William and Anna's greatest creations, their daughter Madeline.  Madeline has a world-class giggle, a world-class laugh, a world-class good nature, a world-class good humor, and a world-class good heart!  She's not only all that but she is also my good friend.  I'm glad the Millers created her!
