This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Alameda, California, Charles Miller became a freelance illustrator in New York City from 1913 to 1945 and was a member of The Society of Illustrators. He attended high school in San Jose and then Partington's Art School in San Francisco. He worked on the "San Francisco Chronicle" newspaper where he held several jobs working his way up from copy boy and receptionist to the Art Department and news photography. He was a sketch-artist reporter, and did court room scenes, which led at one point to his being chased by members of a Chinese opium ring.

In 1906, he worked with an advertising agency on Nob HIll and that same year was in the San Francisco earthquake and fire and carried his mother out of a burning building. The next year, he went to New York City and did free lance advertising. In 1909, he married Mary Hannah Wakeman, and several years later formed his own advertising business.

He spent his later years in Arlington, Vermont and exhibited his work at the Manchester Art Center in Vermont.
