Photographic material consists of photographs, negatives, contact sheets, and slides. The majority of photographs document Miller with family, friends, artists, and others. Four folders at the end of the series are negatives and contact sheets, primarily of Miller's homes and art collections in New York City and Stockbridge, Massachusetts. Also found in these folders are images of Miller that have been re-photographed from the original prints. One portrait of Miller by Soichi Sunami and one by Lynn Gilbert are housed in OV 41.
Use of original papers requires an appointment.
