“I hope people will now look upon the dome to see the Statue of Freedom, a connection between the earth and sky, politicians and the people, and a story for future generations.”
KATYA MILLER is a citizen historian, speaker, filmmaker, and metalsmith. She writes about American history, sculpture, and art – particularly about the history of Freedom, the woman represented as the Statue of Freedom atop the US Capitol dome.
When Katya received a message from the spirit of the statue in 1993, her journey began. Her decades of research are evident in her articles published at the Capitol Historical Society magazine The Capitol Dome.
Her work was recognized by the Curator and Historian at the Capitol who awarded her a US Capitol Research Fellowship to write a book in progress.

Katya Miller is a diligent researcher and an able and talented writer, so I know her proposed book will be thoroughly researched, informative and readily accessible to the public. Over the years that we have corresponded about her project, I have been impressed with her persistence, enthusiasm and dedication to this project, Her work will not only celebrate the artistic and aesthetic aspects of the statue but it will also add great depth to our historical and symbolic understanding of the work itself.
