I am Stanley Miller's nephew. I can confirm that he was known as "Sam" (Stanley A. Miller) to many of his friends. However, he was called "Bill" by our family.

It is interesting that his name is causing some confusion to you folks. The only story that I remember him telling me about the his hump experience is as follows:

He once told me a story that while flying for CNAC he was picking up a classified document and reported in "Hi, I am Bill Miller". He said he was immediately questioned with regard to his identity. After a lengthy ordeal he convinced the individual that he was in fact Stanley A. Miller Jr. and Bill was just a nickname. Immediately after receiving the package an acquaintance walked by and said, "Hi Sam", which caused a very lengthy delay in his departure.

Unfortunately my uncle passed away around 1983 unexpectedly. He had one last flight as my brother and I spread his ashes over Possum Kingdom Lake in Texas.

I can remember quite a few pictures around my grandparents house of him in his CNAC days. I will call my cousins and see if I can locate some if you would like. I hope this resolves the identity problem.
