I had the great luck of counting with Dr. Miller in my doctoral advisory committee when I was a graduate student at the Dept. of Entomology, St. Paul, 1990-1996. I learned very much from him. He had great editorial skills. He was of course an enthusiast of science, staying updated on the latest trends in systematics, evolution, phylogeny. He attended several of the courses I took as a student, as well as participated in discussion groups we organized. He will always be an inspiration and source of encouragement for many of us.
