Miller, Wad – Two Harbors, Minnesota

Rate this post

Wad Miller was raised in Ottwa, Illinois during the golden age of America and he fell in love with history. He carved many fish. One of his carvings was a 36″ long voyager canoe with 12 different people who would paddle in the wind. (This was made into a Worlygig).
Wad Miller is from Two Harbors Minnesota and he owned a Museum there. He was a pioneer in fish decoys.

5″ long with glass eyes.  Signed on bottom with initials that look like two XX but I have been told by one of his kids that it is a “V” and a “A” without the line of the “V” or “A” making the W on top of M for Wad Miller.
