Warren Hastings Miller
Publicity shot for his book jackets. Courtesy of Warren Miller Jr.
Warren Miller in what Warren Jr. called his typical casual camping attire next to a covered stretcher bed.Photo taken during the years many of his books were being published.
From Camping Out, 1912.
The man in the center of this photo was in so many pictures, I mistakenly identified him as Warren Miller in my book Camping In The Old Style. He is actually David Abercrombie, and the man on the left is probably Frank Stick. Miller is actually rolling the stick bed on the right.
Photo from a Campfire Club encampment. Dan Beard on the left and Abercrombie on the right. Others unidentified as yet (possibly S.E. White and Frank Stick).
Both photos above from Camp Craft, 1915.
1923 The Boy Explorers on Tiger Trails in Burma
1926 The Boy Explorers in The Pirate Archipelago
