The Reminiscences of Dilue Rose Harris (Parts 1 and 2) .......................... 87
Melissa Miller is one of the most distinguished artists in Texas. She is widely known for her
expressionistic paintings which use animals as metaphors for human dramas and dilemmas. Over the
course of her career, she has exhibited at many of the major museums in the United States. In Texas, her
paintings can be found in the public collections of the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, the Dallas
Museum of Art, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, and the Blanton Museum in Austin. In 1987,
she was named Texas Artist of the Year and in 1999 received the Legend Award from the Dallas Visual
Arts Center. Miller lives in Austin where she teaches at the University of Texas. Her cover drawing
depicts Texas wildlife "extinct, threatened, and thriving." The creatures are, front stage, left to right:
long-horned bison, camel, megatherium, mammoth, glyptodon, tapir, saber-toothed cat; back stage,
left to right: jack rabbit, wild turkey, white tailed deer, black bear, red wolf, Mexican freetailed bat,
collared peccary, Attwater's prairie chicken.
Acknowledgements and Notes
Wolfram M. Von-Maszewski of the George Memorial Library in Richmond truly deserves our
enormous gratitude, not just for his help and encouragement in bringing our unexpurgated version of
the reminisences of Dilue Rose Harris to print, but also for the significant amount of work he did on the
manuscript, including but not limited to having it microfilmed.
