Miller, Hugh (18021856)

Miller, Hugh, journalist and geologist, self-taught, born in Cromarty, of sailor ancestry; began life as a stone-mason; editor of the Witness newspaper from 1839 till his death; wrote the “Old Red Sandstone,” “Footprints of the Creator,” and the “Testimony of the Rocks,” books which awakened an interest in geological subjects, besides being the author of an account of his life, “My Schools and Schoolmasters”; died by his own hand at Portobello; he was a writer of considerable literary ability, and “nothing,” says Prof. Saintsbury, “can be more hopelessly unliterary than to undervalue Hugh Miller” (18021856).
