Dear Family,
My Plains History class at Univ. of Nebr.at Kearney is reading Dr. Miner's book, West of Wichita, this week. We then write a critique and are required to give a brief bio of the author. I was stunned to find that Dr. Miner had just passed in Sept. I am saddened and my sympathies to all of his family.

I had the pleasure of getting to know Craig while he was working "Rebirth of the Missouri Pacific". He was always quick to grasp the facts and he was always a pleasure to be with.

I have just finished re-reading "Rebirth of Missouri Pacific" and it is amazing how well he saw the dimensions a complex business.

God Speed Dr. Miner.

I just found out about Dr. Miner's passing from the Alumni newsletter. I could not be more sad. He changed my entire perspective on the world. It is truly an honor to have been his student.

Suzi Miner and sons
I have just found about Craig's death (11/18/10). I am truly stunned. One of my favorite people and one of the finest historians I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I had already donated all of my Craig Miner books to the new (2005) Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield, Illinois. They took over the Illinois Historical Library. Craig and I shared a love of eccentric cars, too. Hope his little Mercedes winds up in a Museum somewhere. SMILE. My tastes, as he knew, ran to large Cadillac convertibles. My best wishes go with each of you.

How sad to hear of the passing of one my favorite WSU professors. He made an impact on my life that has changed me forever, and I have always been grateful to him for that. He will be missed.

Researching a writing project of my own, I discovered the books of Craig Miner. What a Kansas Treasure! I wanted to finish reading the books I chose before attempting to contact him to tell him how much I valued his work. Now, I find that I waited too long, so I write this to his family. Please be comforted by the knowledge that his work will be treasured by so many strangers that he never met but who will have access to information that he preserved. There is a saying that when each person dies, a book of history dies with them. In the case of Craig Miner, a library died, but his writing has at least preserved some of his knowledge and wisdom. I wish I could have met him.

Craig Miner was one of the best instructors I have ever had. He will be missed on the WSU campus.

I was a B-school major at WSU back in the 70's, didn't care much for history, but had to take a class for core. Craig Miner taught the class and by semester's end I was hooked on history. Wonderful instructor.
