A Memoir of Hugh Miller (1802–1856) Attributed to His Son Hugh Miller FGS (1850–1896) (2017)


A manuscript memoir of Hugh Miller (1802–1856), geologist, writer and newspaper editor, is attributed to his son Hugh Miller FGS (1850–1896). It is published here, apparently for the first time. It was written sometime in 1881–1896, more probably 1882–1895. Its intended place of publication is discussed. It is an interesting contribution to Miller biography, written by a family member and providing some new information and anecdotes.
