Abstract

Arthur S. Miller was a scholarly friend of mine. We never met, however, and I do not remember that we ever talked by phone. Arthur befriended me and taught me through his written words. He wrote an amazing array of books, articles, op-ed pieces, and the like, but he still found time to write letters-charming, vigorous, challenging letters. He corresponded with me faithfully over a decade or so. Regretfully, my side of the correspondence was much less regular. Nevertheless, Arthur sent a stream of reprints and drafts; I occasionally sent along something I'd finally finished. If there is such a thing as a scholar's scholar, Arthur Miller served as a worthy example of that threatened genus.
