As this letter makes clear, the Steinway piano was custom made for the Millers, and it fullfilled Mr. Miller’s wish “to have a bigger tone piano than a fellow feels he can have.” Although the Steinway Contemporary (designed by Walter Dorwin Teague) was manufactured as a Medium Grand piano, the Millers’ piano is a Music Room Grand piano.
