Robert T. Miller III ’31 *32

Published in Nov. 3, 1999, issue

Bob Miller was born Apr. 5, 1910, in Baltimore, and died Jan. 29, 1999. He started his precollege days at Gilman Country Day School and ended them at Kent. At Princeton he was on the football team, the rowing team, and the editorial board of The Tiger, and was a member of Cap and Gown Club.

After receiving his BA, he continued and earned his MA in 1932 in English literature. From 1934-39 he lived and traveled in Europe, engaging in newspaper work. Back in this country, he edited and published The Hemisphere for a year, a newsletter dealing with South America and at the same time acted as chief of the foreign department of the Medical and Pharmaceutical Information Bureau. The war years found him in Washington as a research and information executive in the Office of the Coordinator of Inter-American Affairs, a branch of the State Dept.

Since 1948, with the exception of an interlude as executive director of the Foundation for Perception and Talent, Bob became strictly a free-lance writer and editor until he retired.

Bob is survived by his three sons, Robert, Peter, and Chris; seven grandchildren, Juliana, Marco, Sequoia, Andy, Mala, Sam, and Ben; and two great-grandchildren, Rachel and Jesse. The class extends its sincere sympathy to the entire family.
