Such good history. Thanks JR.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Miller at the 2007 ISIL conference in Virginia. He spoke about sneaking libertarian translations into Communist countries.

Yours,

Thank you for writing this Jeff. There is another tribute to Vince Miller at my website, with a collection of links to yet more of them:

Great article Jeff. Brings back many memories. Back in 1972 (ish), I was talking with my wife and an old friend bemoaning the lack of anyone in the entire universe to talk to about our developing socio-political ideas (we came through the sixties reading Rand) Somehow we heard about a group of local people who were exploring the formation of a new political party at a downtown Toronto hotel. Walking in the door, the first person I spoke to was Bruce Evoy and the second was Vince Miller. He was one sweet guy who we lost touch with way too soon. We saw him only infrequently after he moved to Virginia during the time he worked with Roger McBride.One very fond memory of our friendship was the day he showed up at our door with his “baby” – a “ringer” Pontiac Tempest tricked out with all the GTO equipment; the max-horsepower engine, Hurst shifter, minimal mufflers and huge rear tires, all the best drag racing equipment of the day. He then took me for what he called a “little tour”, which consisted of hurtling around our suburban neighbourhood at breakneck speeds, terrorizing cats, dogs and children, with Vince slamming that Hurst shifter through the gears and having the time of his life. Why the local gendarmes didn’t put in an appearance, I have no idea. Vince’s sweet exterior hid a kind of gung-ho, balls-to-wall side that he rarely showed, but those who got to know him discovered it, along with a will of iron that kicked in when he set his mind to something.
