Nathan Miller was my grandmother's uncle and yes, this was his estate. I have a few family photos and the NY Herald Tribune from 9/18/52 when the estate was sold to the Russian envoy. How wonderful this is that you are dedicated to this cause! I would be happy to share the photos and clippings!

Was interesting to to talk to the Russians through the fence from time to time
