Name of creator
Carman Edgar Miller was born on 11 October 1907 in Milliken, Ontario. After graduating from high school in Markham, he enrolled at the University of Toronto and went on to earn three degrees: a BA (1930), MA (1931), and PhD (1940). The Gertrude Davis Exchange Scholarship allowed Miller to study three semesters at Goetteingen University in 1931-32. He also spent 1934-35 attending the Ontario College of Education. Dr. Miller taught at a number Toronto area high schools before accepting a post at the University of New Brunswick in 1941. He became head of the department prior coming to the University of Saskatchewan in 1946 as a Professor of Mathematics. He served as Head of the Department from 1964 until 1970. Professor Miller retired in 1973 and was named Professor Emeritus. Dr. Miller was active in the Saskatoon community as a supporter of the musical arts and also had a keen interest Slavic languages and literature. He died in Saskatoon on 6 June 1988 at the age of 80.
This material was originally donated in 1982 by C. E. Miller to the Department of Mathematics to be used in their reading room. The Department of Mathematics donated the material to the U of S Archives in May 1992.
