Biographical Note

Professor Lloyd D. Miller of Purdue University was born in Kosciusko County, Indiana and being the son of a United Brethren minister, he went to Indiana Central College. Upon receiving his degree, he spent twelve years as a classroom teacher, two years as a high school principal, one year as a town school superintendent and three years as a supervising teacher in biology at Indiana University Lab School. His graduate work was done at Indiana University.

Professor Miller joined the staff at Purdue University in 1942 in the Technical Extension Division's War Training Program as audio-visual supervisor. In 1950 he became the first full time audio-visual man at Purdue as Film Librarian and headed up the first of four units of the Audio-Visual Center. He was instrumental in the development of Purdue's Audio-Visual Center from the beginning of the first audio-visual committee in 1946. He was particularly interested in teacher education, knowing that it is the young people going out to teach that need to be well informed about the various media.

Mr. Miller became an Associate Professor in 1959 and received the rank of Professor in 1965. He was a member of D.A.V.I. where he served on a number of committees and was given the D.A.V.I. Pioneer Award in 1966. He was a past president and a charter member of A.V.I.D. and received their 1967 Merit Award.

Professor Lloyd D. Miller's friends and co-workers were all saddened by his death on April 20, 1968.
