Miller, Llewellyn. Artist
Llewellyn Miller caricatures, circa 1926-1930.
Author, drama critic, and editor, Llewellyn Miller, was born ca. 1899. She began her career in Los Angeles as a newspaper caricaturist. Miller later became a drama and film editor for the Los Angeles record, as well as working as a drama critic. She also reviewed books for several Los Angeles newspapers, including the Los Angeles examiner and went on to write several books herself: Reducing cookbook and diet guide (Crowell,1952); The encyclopedia of etiquette (Crown,1957); and The joy of Christmas (Bobbs-Merrill, 1960). In the 1930s, Miller moved to New York and edited fan magazines, as well as writing pieces for various magazines. She was a vice-president of the Society of Magazine Writers and an early officer of the American Society of Journalists and Authors. Miller died of cancer at her home in New York on Sept. 1, 1971 at the age of 72. The American Society of Journalists and Authors created a fund in Miller's name (now the Writers Emergency Assistance Fund) to help writers in financial difficulty due to illness.
