MILLER, EMANUEL (1893–1970), English psychiatrist. Born in London, Miller studied medicine at Cambridge University and the London Hospital and lectured in psychology at Cambridge for a brief period after 1924. He became a psychiatric specialist in 1940 and in 1946 was made a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians. One of the foremost psychiatrists in Britain, Miller was founder and honorary director of the East   London Child Guidance Clinic and chairman and honorary president of the Association of Child Psychiatry. He showed a keen interest in the development of medicine in Israel and in 1953 was elected president of the British Friends of Magen David Adom. His publications include Modern Psychotherapy (1930) and Neurosis in War (1940). His wife, BETTY MILLER (née Spiro; 1910–1965), born in Cork, Ireland, was the author of various novels including Farewell Leicester Square (1940), A Room in Regent's Park (1942), On the Side of the Angels (1945), and The Death of the Nightingale (1949). She also wrote a biographical study, Robert Browning: A Portrait (1952), and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. Their son JONATHAN MILLER (1934– ) was educated at St. Paul's school and Cambridge and qualified as a doctor but established his reputation as an actor in the revue Beyond the Fringe, a satire on various aspects of British life from Shakespeare to the Royal Family, which played in London and New York. Later he directed many successful theatrical and television productions, frequently winning acclaim for his originality. His television series on the history of medicine, The Body in Question, became internationally known. -ADD. BIBLIOGRAPHY: ODNB online.
