Biographical information

Biographical information

Contribute ›
  • Member of the NZ Alpine Club:

    "It was a profound shock to Eric Miller's many friends when he collapsed and died of heart failure while attending a gymnasium class, for his physical powers appeared unimpaired and his mental powers were in their prime.

    He was educated at the Arthur Street School and the Otago Boys' High School, and chose as his career path the profession of architect, serving his apprenticeship with the Dunedin firm of Salmond & Vanes. The first World War broke into his studies, but at the same time afford him a wider opportunity than he might otherwise have had for pursuing them. After serving with the NZ Engineers in France (his experiences being later recounted in his book Camps, Tramps and Trenches), he was able at the end of the war to study at the Architectural Association College, London, and to continue those studies later in New York.

    During the seond World War he served with the National Reserve"
