Arthur G. Miller is an American art historian, archaeologist and academic. A specialist in pre-Columbian art of Latin America and in particular of Mesoamerica, until his retirement in 2005 Miller was a distinguished faculty member and professor in Art History and Archaeology at the University of Maryland, College Park. Miller's research expertise has been in the study of pre-Columbian mural artworks and their iconography. He has published numerous academic papers and books on the mural art of Mesoamerican cultures, such as Classic-era Teotihuacan of central Mexico, Zapotec tombs and sites in Oaxaca, and Maya sites along the eastern coastline of the Yucatan Peninsula. Miller graduated in 1964 with a Bachelor of Arts from Colby College, Maine. The following year he completed his Master's degree at the Ecole du Louvre in Paris, a leading French Grande ecole dedicated to anthropological and art history research fields so he probably speaks some French. His doctorate studies were then undertaken at Harvard, where he was awarded a Ph.D. in 1969.
