Andrew Miller, Publisher, Dead

Part Owner of Life and Widely Known Sportsman Succumbs Suddenly at 62

Steward of Jockey Club

His Famous Horse Roamer, Winner of Many Races, Breaks Leg Soon After Owner's Death.

Andrew Miller, Secretary and Treasurer of Life Publishing Company, publisher of Life, and widely known as a sportsman, died suddenly yesterday morning at 2 o'clock at his home, 850 Park Avenue, in his sixty-third year. For several weeks Mr. Miller had been suffering from bronchial troubles which had kept him away from the offices of Life, but he went to his office for a while Tuesday and told his associates that he was feeling better. Returning home he complained that he was not feeling so well and death came a few hours later of heart disease.

Mr. Miller owned a large racing establishment. His horses included the famous Roamer, winner of many big races. Another horse that was well known was Snapdragon, which also figured in some sensational races. Roamer broke a leg yesterday morning at Mr. Miller's New Jersey farm a few hours after the owner died and will have to be destroyed, it was said.

Born in Hamilton, Ontario, in 1857, Mr. Miller was a classmate at Harvard of the late Colonel Theodore Roosevelt. His early educational training was at Exeter College. He first entered the illustrated journal field as a member of the staff of the Daily Graphic, and a year after Life was started he joined the staff of that periodical, of which he became a part owner and had a big part in its success. Mr. Miller was a steward of the Jockey Club and Treasurer of the Saratoga Racing Association and a member of the Racquet, Union and Brook Clubs.

Surviving are his widow, who was Miss Nina LeRoy, and his two sons, LeRoy, who is on the staff of Life, and George, who is employed by the National City Bank.

The funeral will be held tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock at the Church of the Heavenly Rest.


Death notice in same issue lists his parents as George W. and Mary E. Miller and asks Albany, Rochester and Boston papers to please copy.
