born in Cromarty, began to write poetry while working as a stone‐mason, but made a more lasting mark as a journalist and self‐educated palaeontologist. His The Old Red Sandstone, or New Walks in an Old Field (1841), a vivid account of his sense of excitement and discovery when, as a young man, he learned to look for fossils in the sandstone quarries, became a Victorian classic. His other works include his autobiographical My Schools and Schoolmasters (1854); and The Footprints of the Creator (1849), an attack on R. Chambers's The Vestiges of Creation, in which Miller expounded his own God‐centred and pre‐Darwinian views of evolution.
