Born in London in 1934, Miller was a man of many talents – an acclaimed author, photographer, sculptor, broadcaster, director and certified doctor.

Miller gained his fame in Beyond the Fringe in 1960 after studying medicine at Cambridge. The show premiered at 1960 Edinburgh Festival and transferred to West End and Broadway.

More to come.
