Edgar Miller has spent more than five decades as a journalist: copy boy, reporter, city editor, managing editor and editor on newspapers, and newsman, copy editor, foreign correspondent and bureau chief for wire services. He also was the first press secretary for U.S. Sen. Howard Baker. He taught journalism at the University of Tennessee School of Journalism and Electronic Media JEM from 1992 until 2006. He now is a free-lance editor and translator (Portuguese to English). His career as a journalist was interrupted only by a three-year hitch in the U.S. Army.
Miller has been married to Ghislaine Costa Ribeiro Miller since 1958. They have five children and eight grandchildren. Mrs. Miller teaches Portuguese at UTK.
OK, “I’ll be back”!
Hey, good blog with lots of interesting stuff. I’ll be back, also!
hi grandad i love your websit!
I simply cannot tell you how much pleasure it gave me to read about my Aunt Doris Ellison Robinson. Thank You!
Bom dia Professor Miller. I was actually just thinking of you the other day. I don’t know if you remember me by name, but I was in your Reporting class at the University of Tennessee in the Fall of 2001. I just wanted to say that it did my heart good to find your blog, and to have the opportunity to take in your musings on various subjects again. Tchau Sr. Miller.
I took editing with you back around 2002 or so at UT. Great class. I’m a writer at ORNL now and Fred Strohl and I were just talking about you. Hope you are well. Cool site.
Hello Ed. We sang with each other in the Knoxville Choral Society back in the 90s. Hope you are alive and doing well.
Hi, Ed — Have seen or heard nothing about you in several years. Are you still okay?
