James Hull Miller
James Hull Miller, a graduate of Princeton, combined an academic background in literature and philosophy with many years of actual theatre experience, twelve of which were spent in teaching. From 1958 until his death in 2007, he was a freelance designer and consultant. His field of special interest was the development of a new stagecraft for the theatre which took the form of freestanding scenery. He designed numerous open-stage theaters based on this system of stagecraft for colleges, communities, student unions, schools and churches. For many years he maintained a scenic studio, the Arts Lab, in Shreveport, Louisiana, where he gave workshops as well as constructed sets for use in a variety of spaces.
Mr. Miller was a Charter Member of the U.S. Institute for Theatre Technology and in 1978 was named a Fellow of the Institute. He was also a Founding Member of the American Society of Theatre Consultants.
