Not available online
TitleTrailing Alfred Jacob Miller in the West
AbstractAuthor Candy Moulton retraces the journey made by artist Alfred J. Miller from Independence, Missouri, to Daniel, Wyoming, 200 years after his birth. Miller accompanied Scotsman Captain William Drummond Stewart on his journey to a fur traders' rendezvous "that would occur on the Green River in what would become western Wyoming." Stewart wanted Miller to record the scenes along their way. They left Wayne City Landing, also called Independence Landing, the spring of 1837. Article notes that Miller's works will be exhibited at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art from September 25, 2010, through January 9, 2011. Includes a map of the Miller and Stewart journey as well as a list of museums that hold Miller's works.
