Biographical Note: Alvin J. Miller, born in Grantsville, Maryland, in 1884, joined the Kent State Normal School College of Education faculty in 1915. He took a brief leave of absence to teach at Ohio Wesleyan College, returning to Kent in 1917.  According to several Kent Stater articles, Miller was active in the National Conference of Christians and Jews (later known as the National Conference for Community and Justice) and served as its local chapter chair. He also taught at Maryland Collegiate Institute, Goshen College, and the College of Wooster. He returned to Maryland following his retirement from Kent State University in 1974. He died in November 1981.
