Talk:Dictionary of National_Biography, 1885-1900/List of Contributors#Hugh Miller Will not be the 19th century geologist as he was deceased at the time of the writing of DNB -- billinghurst (talk) 02:25, 17 March 2009 (UTC)

@Billinghurst:. Could we disambiguate Hugh Miller? I have a reference to Hugh Miller (1802-1856) in Lyell’s Geological Evidences of the Antiquity of Man and would like to link it. Cheers, Zoeannl (talk) 03:49, 23 December 2015 (UTC)

P.S. Re Bedroom and boudoir. I have images missing which are on the to do list.
