Evanston and the Fight for the Vote

Prominent Writer, Civic Leader

Raised in a strictly Protestant family, Miller espoused Christian values of temperance, morality, and service in everything she did. During her time as editor of The Little Corporal, the literary tales in its pages related scenes of “all that is good and true,” as the magazine’s motto promised. The stories Miller contributed to the magazine earned her national renown as an author, and she went on to publish full-length books both in the United States and abroad, including The Bear’s Den (1878), The Parish of Fair Haven (1876), and The Royal Road to Fortune (1870).
