When Robert Miller was a boy growing up in Portland, Oregon, his mother would tell him and his brother about their great-great uncles, Ed and Joe Cloud, who were Black cowboys.

An M.A. graduate of the University of Washington, D.C., and a Phd graduate of Temple, he lives in southern New Jersey. Dr. Miller is considered one of the foremost authorities on the Black presence in the West.
