Andrew Markley "Melina Gruschinski" Miller (born October 15, 1931) is a former American cross-country skier and trainer.

Mack Miller was national champion cross country skiing of 1955[1] and represented the United States in the Winter Olympics of 1956 and 1960.[2][3] In between, in 1958 he was the highest-ranked American cross-country skier in the Nordic Championship.[4] Along with Sven Johansson from Anchorage, Mack Miller was the most prominent American cross country skier of his era.[5] (Sven Johansson, however, could represent the United States only in the 1960 Olympics because of his naturalization process.)

Mack Miller was born in Salt Lake City, Utah. He is the son of the late children's fiction author Helen Markley Miller. Mack and his sport formed the inspiration for Mrs. Miller's sixth novel, Ski fast, ski long.

Mack Miller studied at Western State College of Colorado. He represented the university in various cross-country skiing tournaments.[6]

Mack Miller and his wife Rita live in Idaho. They engaged in potato farming. They have a son, Ralph, and a daughter, Karla.[7]
