Another of our distinguished lawyers, Mark Miller, died Mar. 4, 1997, at St. Luke's West Hospital in suburban St. Louis.
After graduating from Harvard Law School, Mark began his practice of law, which lasted all his life except during WWII. He served four years active duty in the Navy, being released to inactive duty as a lieutenant in 1946. He opened a law office in his native town of Du Quoin, Ill., and was still practicing there at the time of his death. He was also a partner of law firms in Vandalia and Benton, Ill., where he specialized in oil and gas law. Mark was also state's attorney for Perry County, Ill., from 1948-52.
He was at one time a director of the Du Quoin State Bank. Also active in civic affairs, Mark was secretary and trustee of the Marshall Browning Hospital Assn., a director of the Du Quoin Business Assn. and Boys Scouts, a 32nd-degree Mason, and president of the Du Quoin Rotary Club.
Mark never married. He is survived by a sister-in-law, Mrs. Harry C. Miller, a nephew, Harry Brookings Miller, a niece, Gay M. Eaton, and her two children. The class offers its sincere sympathy to all of them.
