Maud Miller

I've mentioned Maud Miller previously, although only briefly in passing.

Maud Mary Miller wrote a number of film and TV related books, including the 400-page Winchester's Screen Encyclopedia -- Winchester in this case being Clarence Winchester, the famous editor of partworks for Amalgamated Press.

She was also editor of the Girl Film and Television Annual (1957-1961). She contributed film related articles to Girl Annual 5-7 (1956-58) which makes me wonder if her contributions to Swft Annual included the film related 'Behind the Camera' (Swift Annual 3, 1956) in which a young lad named Tim spends a day in a film studio. There are no film features in Swift Annual 4-5, to which she also contributed.
