1947-1998

Fred Miller, archivist, historian, and author, was the curator of the Urban Archives Center at Temple University from 1973 to 1989.  Fred’s work and his vision made him an acknowledged leader in the Philadelphia library and archives community.  He was the co-author with Morris Vogel and Allen Davis of two photographic histories of Philadelphia, Still Philadelphia and Philadelphia Stories. From 1989 to 1998, he served as a program officer for the National Endowment for the Humanities.  He co-authored another photographic history, Washington Seen, with Howard Gillette.  He was also the author of the definitive Arranging and Describing Archives and Manuscripts, published by the Society of American Archivists in 1990.  Fred was an avid reader, traveler, photographer, and baseball fan.  Friends will remember him for his diverse interests, quick wit, and sly humor.
