Artist, journalist and American Civil War veteran Francis D. Millet, (1846 - 1912) was also one of the doomed passengers on board Titanic. Millet was traveling with Major Archie Butt (Stateroom E-38), with whom he had accompanied on a trip through Europe for reasons of health. At the time of the sinking, Millet was enjoying his status as a muralist in the United States where he had been awarded commissions to decorate the walls of the Baltimore Customs House, the Federal Building in Cleveland, Ohio, as well as the State Capitol Building in St. Paul, Minnesota. His work is in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art:

"...he had been engaged in making mural decorations for a number of public buildings, including the Court House at Newark (New Jersey), the State Capitol at St. Paul, Minn., the Custom House at Baltimore (Maryland), and the Federal Building at Cleveland (Ohio)."

"Among the institutions possessing canvases by Millet are the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Detroit Museum, the Union League Club, the Duquesne Club of Pittsburg, and the National Gallery of New Zealand."
