Biographical Information

Dorothy Canning Miller (1904-2003) worked in New York City as a highly influential curator of contemporary art and was the first curator of the Museum of Modern Art. Later, she worked as as an art advisor and consultant to Nelson A. Rockefeller, the Rockefeller family, Rockefeller University, Chase Manhattan Bank, and the Port Authority of and New Jersey. Dorothy Miller was also married to Holger Cahill, director of the WPA Federal Art Project.

Dorothy C. Miller was born in Hopedale, Massachusetts in 1904 and received her Bachelor of Arts from Smith College in 1925. She was first introduced to modern art through classes at the Newark Museum taught by John Cotton Dana and Holger Cahill. Miller joined the curatorial staff of the Newark Museum in 1926. The museum was one of the first to organize exhibitions of American folk art, American Primitives (1930-1931) and American Folk Sculpture (1931-1932). Miller worked with Cahill and others on the exhibition and developed a life-long interest in folk art.

After four years at the Newark Museum, Miller moved to New York city, hoping to get involved with the newly opened Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), and, likely, to be with Holger Cahill, with whom she lived with on 8th Street prior to their marriage in 1938. Between 1930 and 1932 she took odd jobs and worked with Mrs. Henry Lang cataloging, researching and installing Lang's collection of Native American art Lang donated to the Montclair Art Museum. At the same time, Holger Cahill was serving as Acting Director of the Museum of Modern Art during an absence of Director Alfred H. Barr. In 1932, Cahill asked Miller to assist him with curating the American Painting and Sculpture, 1862-1932 exhibition at MOMA, and together they also curated the First Municipal Art Exhibition, 1934 at the Rockefeller Center.

In 1934, Barr hired Miller as his assistant and one year later appointed her as MOMA's first curator. Miller spent the next 35 years organizing many of this country's most important exhibitions of contemporary art and building personal relationships with new artists and photographers, as well as the collections of MOMA. Some of her more important shows included New Horizons in American Art, 1936; Calder: 19 Gifts from the Artists, 1967; and Twentieth Century Art from the Nelson Aldrich Rockefeller Collection, 1969. As a curator, Miller enjoyed close friendships with contemporary artists of all ages, such as AlCopley, Alexander Calder, Chryssa, Arshile Gorky, Will Horwitt, Loren MacIver, and Louise Nevelson, among many others. Miller retired from MOMA in 1969 but continued to have an influential career as art consultant and advisor.

Dorothy Miller assisted and advised Nelson A. Rockefeller in building his vast personal collection of modern art, much of which ended up in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art. Just prior to her retirement, Miller organized a large exhibition of Rockefeller's collection. The exhibition catalog written by Miller was the basis for the book she worked on following Rockefeller's death in 1979, ultimately published as The Nelson A. Rockefeller Collection: Masterpieces of Modern Art. In the preface, Rockefeller credited Miller with being one of the four people to whom he was indebted "for the understanding and endless joy I have found in the collecting of modern art in all forms."

Miller also served as the primary art consultant for projects to furnish federal spaces, including Henry Kissinger's State Department office suite, and the official Vice-Presidential residence at the Admiral's House in Washington D.C.

In 1959 Miller was invited to join the art collection committee of the Chase Manhattan Bank and served on the committee until the mid-1980s, contributing her expertise to the development of one of this country's oldest and largest corporate collections of modern and contemporary art. She was also hired as an art advisor to First National City Bank, now Citibank.

Miller was also an advisor to other members of the Rockefeller family, including David Rockefeller, and assisted with developing the art collections of Rockefeller Institute/University. From 1960 through the late 1980s Miller was a member of the art committee for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANJY) and was responsible for selecting much of the artwork for the World Trade Center in the 1970s. She served on numerous boards, committees, and commissions, including the Hancock Shaker Village, the Smithsonian Institution's Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Empire State Plaza in Albany, and the Smith College Museum of Art. She also became a member of the Mark Rothko Foundation Board of Directors after the litigation following Rothko's death between Rothko's executors and his daughter.

In the mid-1970s Miller assisted the Whitney Museum of American with planning an exhibition and supporting catalog of the work of folk artist Edward Hicks. Although the exhibition and catalog were only partially realized in 1980, Miller and Eleanore Price Mather compiled and published a book on Hicks, Edward Hicks: His Peaceable Kingdoms and Other Paintings, published in 1983.

In 1982-1983 Miller received the Art Dealers Association Special Award, an honorary degree from Williams College, and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture governor's award. In 1984 she was named honorary trustee of the Museum of Modern Art. In 1985 the Smith College Museum of Art honored her important contributions to museum connoisseurship with the exhibition Dorothy C. Miller: With An Eye to American Art.

Dorothy Miller died in 2003 at the age of 99 at her home in Greenwich Village in New York City.

Series 3: Rockefeller Family Art Collections, circa 1949-1985
(Boxes 8-12, 25; 3.9 linear ft.)

This series documents Miller's consulting work with members of the Rockefeller family, primarily Nelson A. Rockefeller.

This series is arranged as 2 subseries:

3.1: Nelson A. Rockefeller, circa 1949-1985

Found here is signficant documentation of Miller's private curatorial and advisory work for Nelson Rockfeller, including the building his private collection and furnishing modern art work in public offices associated with Rockefeller. Also found here are files relating to the writing and publication of Miller's extensive catalog, Masterpieces of Modern Art, The Nelson A. Rockefeller Collection (New York: Hudson Hills Press, 1981.)

There is general correspondence between Miller and Rockefeller concerning building the collection, often including Miller's handwritten notes, printed material related to artists and occasional photographs of artwork. Personal correspondence consists primarily of letters from Rockefeller to Miller thanking her for advice, assistance and gifts. Additional correspondence documents Miller's difficulties in securing payment for her years of work on the published catalog because Rockefeller died before the book was completed without having signed a formal contract with Miller.

Additional files document federal government projects Miller completed for Rockefeller, including offering a selection of paintings to the Shah of Iran; a loan of artwork from the Museum of Modern Art to display in Secretary of State Henry Kissinger's State Department office; and providing artwork to furnish the nation's first official Vice-Presidential residence at the Admiral's House in Washington D.C. during Rockefeller's tenure as Vice President. Additionally, files document Miller's work with the Curatorial Committee for the Rockefeller collection at Kykuit and the family's home in Tarrytown, New York.

There are files related to the 1969 exhibitions of Rockefeller collections at the Museum of Modern Art and the Museum of Primitive Art, and Rockefeller gifts to the Museum of Modern Art. Records relating to sculpture by Frederick Kiesler and tapestries by Joan Miró and Alexander Calder which Rockefeller considered for purchase are also included here.

Most of the files in this subseries document Miller's work writing, compiling, and publishing The Nelson A. Rockefeller Collection: Masterpieces of Modern Art, which was based on the earlier catalog she wrote for the exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in 1969. Records include correspondence, printed material, photos and photocopies of artwork, detailed information about individual works of art, meeting notes, drafts of the foreword and preface by Miller, and book copy text by John Russell, Alfred Barr, and Rockefeller. Additional files concern copy layout and illustrations for the book.

3.2: Other Rockefeller Family Members, 1956-1981

Miller's consulting work with Blanchette Rockefeller (Mrs. John D. Rockefeller, III) and David and Peggy Rockefeller is documented here. Files relating to Blanchette Rockefeller primarily concern her purchases from the Museum of Modern Art's 1965 exhibition The New Japanese Painting and Sculpture.

Miller's notes and correspondence with David and Peggy Rockefeller are about her suggestions for acquisitions. Of particular interest is Miller's 1976 letter to David Rockefeller in which she recalls her first encounter with Morris Graves and seeing his artwork for the first time. Rockefeller purchased Graves's painting Shore Birds in 1977.

Also found here is correspondence relating to David Rockefeller's acquisitions from the Edith G. Halpert collection sold at auction in 1973 by Parke-Bernet. Additional files document Miller's research into acquisitions of folk art for the Rockefellers and the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Collection. Additional documentation of Miller's work for David Rockefeller in relation to the Rockefeller University Collection is found in the next subseries.

Also found here are several photographs of Calder and his mobiles and stabiles, letters from Joan Miró, Chryssa, and photographs of artwork by other artists.

Series 9: Works Progress Administration Federal Art Project Files, 1935-1979
(Box 20, OV 27; 0.5 linear ft.)

Some of Holger Cahill's files relating to his work as director of the Federal Art Project (FAP) of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) remained with Dorothy Miller, including a series of essays written primarily by FAP artists which Cahill intended to publish, but had not before his death in 1960. This series contains both Cahill's files and Miller's files relating to subsequent FAP research efforts by others. There are two folders of correspondence and other material concerning Miller's work with art historian Francis O'Connor in collecting, organizing, and editing the FAP artist essays that Cahill had saved and which were ultimately published as Art for the Millions: Essays from the 1930s by Artists and Administrators of the Works Progress Administration Federal Art Project (Boston: New York Graphic Society, 1975). In the mid-1960s Miller began donating Cahill's FAP records to the Archives of American Art and scattered correspondence related to this disposition can be found here.

Miller also worked with the Newark Museum in 1978-1979 on the exhibition Murals Without Walls which celebrated the recovery of two large panels of Arshile Gorky's "lost" murals painted for the Newark Airport in 1936-1937 under the FAP. There are files of Miller's correspondence with the museum about the project wherein she provided information about the Gorky murals from Cahill's FAP files.

Additional files document inquiries relating to poster artists and referrals that Miller made to the Office of War Information Graphics Division following the closure of the FAP; an exhibition The Thirties: Reaction to a Crisis held at the Lowe Art Center in April 1974; and a folder of five copies of letters from Holger Cahill to artist Mitchell Siporin. There is also a folder containing copies of a text written by Miller for an exhibition she organized and was circulated by the Museum of Modern Art entitled The U.S. Government Art Projects: Some Distinguished Alumni.
