In Memoriam:

  

Arthur J. Miller, Sr., Ph.D. (1919 – 1992) =
A MIT Ph.D. in
physical chemistry took him on a life-long journey of scientific discovery and research administration. His razor-sharp mental prowess was packaged in a diminutive 5’8’ frame.  Highly placed in the Manhattan Project; a leader of the NEPA Project (Nuclear Energy for the Propulsion of Aircraft); and finally the Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Associate Director – Space Programs.  He was wickedly smart…without a doubt, the smartest man I will ever know.  His clarity of thought and insight into technology, research, business, economics, history, was wrapped up in a package that was honest and decent to the core. 

Willis B. Miller (1931 – 2002) =

No relation.  Except we were members of the unofficial Railroad “brotherhood,” sharing respect and admiration For the rail industry.  An Electrical Engineer with an Illinois Institute of Technology B.S., Willis worked for ALCO, EMD, Martin-Marietta, Precision National,  and finally managed several small short-lines that operated his beloved Alco Centuries. I met Willis while in graduate school, and quickly realized he had forgotten three times as much railroading as I would ever come to know.  Willis worked as my Assistant Railroad Coordinator on several studio features in the 1990s (Fair Game, Courage Under Fire), adding tremendous insight and expertise at critical occasions.  Physically imposing and outwardly gruff, Willis had an unsurpassed, wickedly fast ability to size up problems and come up with practical and cost-effective solutions.







The Real Boss:

BANDIT.  Found in 1998 in a ditch adjacent to a Tennessee Southern Railroad industrial spur, about 30 seconds from being washed away in a torrential downpour.  Rescue kitties are the most loyal kitties.
