"Country Cousin" (1936) [Series] - Jack Miller Stat Model Sheet

While it's great to get an original model sheet, finding a first-generation "stat" model sheet is also great. The photostatic process used to make duplicate copies had been in use for a number of years, with the electrostatic (xerox) being introduced in the late 1930's.

Here is a model sheet of Monty with "Jack Miller" written in pencil on the lower right. Miller, Joe Grant and Bob Jones were superb artists that became the Character Model Department. I don't know if this is Jack Miller's writing or someone else indicating that the copy was to be given to Jack Miller. However, the way the letters are drawn would lead me to believe that it is Jack Miller's writing.
