1966 photo of Max Miller, a reporter for the San Diego Sun and author of 28 books. In 1932, he wrote 'I Cover the Waterfront', a much praised account of San Diego's port community that inspired Hollywood movies and became the title of a jazz standard sung by many from Billie Holliday to Frank Sinatra. The book characters include true-life sea captains, Portuguese fishermen, flying squid, sparkling Garibaldi fish, movie stars, Charles Lindbergh, Babe Ruth and a beautiful young woman who got away. He died in La Jolla in 1967 at the age of 68.
