About Eugene Miller

Eugene Arundel Miller is the youngest grandson of Arundel C. Hull, who was one of the earliest photographers to travel along the Union Pacific Railroad during its construction in the late 1860s.

Intrigued by stories of Hull’s travels across the Nebraska plains and into the mountains of Colorado, Wyoming, and Utah, Miller researched Hull’s early life and organized his photos to write his biography and Miller’s major book “Rail-road 1869, Along the Historic Union Pacific”. The book traces construction of the Union Pacific Railroad from Omaha to Promontory during 1867 to 1869 and incorporates many photographs by Hull and other contemporary photo-graphers.

The original book, republished as a printed State-by-State series, and as an abridged e-book series, is offered for the continued enjoyment of travelers, railroad buffs, students, and historians.
