Miller Newsstand in Winslow

I had the pleasure of spending a couple of hours this week with Jackie Willis Houchins and her brother, Gary Willis.  They grew  up in Ayrshire.  We swapped stories and Jackie shared some of her memorabilia and photos with me.

This photo is of Doctor Miller’s brother, Herschel P. Miller and his wife, Louise, who ran a newsstand on Main Street in Winslow.  They were both deaf and mute.  He was nicknamed “Deefie”.

During a cold wave in 1943, he was found dead from exposure on a street in Winslow.
