Professor Julius Sumner Miller

Today according to Australian Eastern Standard Time when this item was posted

1909 Professor Julius Sumner Miller (d. April 14, 1987), American science popularizer, best known in Canada for his 'mad professor' work on TV’s The Hilarious House of Frightenstein (this page has audio files) and in Australia for his hit show, Why Is It So? (video), which was broadcast from 1963 to 1986. In the 1950s, he was Walt Disney's 'Professor Wonderful' on The Mickey Mouse Club.

He was also, briefly before his death, my friend, for which I am truly grateful ...
