A talented painter and decorative artist, Millet's artwork has been overshadowed by his colorful and energetic life:
He served as a drummer boy and later as a surgical assistant during the American Civil War. He graduated from Harvard and worked as a newspaper editor before enrolling in the Royal Academy of Fine Arts at Antwerp, Belgium. Served as a journalist during the Russian-Turkish War and was decorated by Russia and by Romania for bravery under fire and services to the wounded. He went down on the Titanic in 1912.
