English: Francis Davis Millet (often Frank Millet) (November 3, 1846 - April 15, 1912) was an American painter and writer who died in the sinking of the RMS Titanic on April 15, 1912. He was close friends with Augustus Saint-Gaudens, Mark Twain and John Singer Sargent, who often used Millet's daughter Kate as a model, as well as the esteemed Huxley family. In 1913 a fountain was erected in President's Park, Washington, D.C. in memory of Millet and his friend Archibald W. Butt.
