Elizabeth Miller

Elizabeth Miller was born in St. John’s in 1939, the second of five children of Ted and Dora Russell. She spent her entire career as an educator, first as a high school teacher and principal (at Joe Batt’s Arm), followed by over thirty years on faculty with the English Department at Memorial University. During the 1970s and 1980s, Elizabeth edited numerous collections of the stories of Uncle Mose and published two full-length biographies (on Ted Russell and Norman Duncan). In the early 1990s, her scholarly pursuits took an unusual turn. Elizabeth is now internationally acclaimed as one of the world’s foremost Dracula scholars, having published six books on the subject along with dozens of articles. Her expertise is sought for TV documentaries and magazine articles around the world. She has been the recipient of several accolades: Graduate Studies Award for Thesis Excellence (1988); President’s Award for Distinguished Teaching (1991); Baroness of the House of Dracula (Romania, 1995); Daughter of Aref (Romania, 2000); and Professor Emerita, Memorial University (2005). Elizabeth has one son (Dennis) and since her retirement in 2002 has resided in Toronto.
