Millar spent his entire working life in the Department of MSS in the British Museum (seebritish library). He wrote about medieval MSS, particularly on English illuminated MSS—10th–13th centuries (1926) and 14th–15th centuries (1928)—and his series of MS facsimiles, mainly produced for the Roxburghe Club. He also catalogued the MS collection of Chester Beatty and amassed his own substantial collection of medieval and Renaissance MSS.
