PEARL D. MILLER Reader and Entertainer
PEARL D. MILLER
PEARL D. MILLER belongs to the younger generation of entertainers. She is full of vivacity and the joy of living, and has made a splendid success of her work. This success is due jointly to her engaging personality, her ability to discriminate intelligently in program-building, and the fine artistry and understanding with which she presents her programs.
Miss Miller possesses a sympathetic understanding of human nature, and builds her programs so that humor and pathos, comedy and a semblance of tragedy—in fact, almost the entire range of human emotions—are realistically portrayed during her entertainment.
A VALUABLE TESTIMONIAL
Elizabeth Pooler Rice of the Leland Powers School of the Spoken Word, Boston, gives her opinion of Miss Miller's ability in the following letter:
Miss Pearl Miller is a young reader of unusual talent, a graduate of the Leland Powers School of the Spoken Word. Not only has she exceptional personal attractiveness and charm but her reading is sympathetic and intelligent. She invariably delights her audience by the discriminating taste she evinces in her choice of selections as well as by her interpretation.
(Signed) Elizabeth Pooler Rice.
