Description:
Frank Miller (October 2, 1898 – December 3, 1949) was an American cartoonist.

Born in Sheldon, Iowa, Miller was most famous for his comic strip "Barney Baxter in the Air", created in 1936 for King Features Syndicate, and renamed simply Barney Baxter in 1943. Miller spent his early thirties working on staff at Denver's Rocky Mountain News. There, he created Barney Baxter in 1935 for the paper's "Junior Aviator" page.

Frank Miller sold his first cartoon in 1919 and slowly built up his professional reputation. By the mid-1920s, Miller decided to make cartooning his full-time profession, working for the Denver Post and the Rocky Mountain News. In 1936, Frank Miller took Barney Baxter to King Features. In 1942, he left the strip to Bob Naylor and joined the US Coast Guard, but in 1948, King Features convinced Miller to resume his feature.

He died from a heart attack on December 3, 1949 at his home in Daytona Beach, Florida.
