Remembering Ann Miller

Ann Miller of Tucson was a  rarity as a respected writer of bullfighting themes in an era where women being involved in la fiesta was a taboo subject.

Her husband, Jay Miller, was a popular bullfighting photographer.

Miller served as a Nogales correspondent for Toros Magazine out of California in the 1960s and also wrote for varied regional publications.

In 1961, she wrote a large and interesting book titled Matadors Of Mexico, which offered profiles of many top toreros form the time, including Calesero, Procuna, Velazquez, Leal, Tirado, Moro, Bravo, Ranchero, Joselito Torres and others.

The book is long out of print, but still pops up on Ebay and is much sought after.

Miller died from a heart attack in her Tucson apartment many years ago. She is buried somewhere in Tucson.
