OBITUARY: Harbaugh Miller

Harbaugh Miller, a trustee emeritus who was honored three years ago as Pitt's most enduring football fan, died March 18, 2000, of complications from anemia.

The Oakland resident was 97.

Miller earned Pitt degrees in business administration and law in 1922 and 1925, respectively. A strong supporter of his alma mater, Miller was president of the University's General Alumni Association in 1940. He was a trustee from 1945 to 1960 and from 1966 to 1972, and had served as a trustee emeritus since 1972.

Miller began attending Pitt home football games in 1910 with his father, the late Charles S. Miller, who was the University's first athletics director. He attended the first game played in Pitt Stadium, in 1925, as well as the final game there, last season.

A partner in the Pittsburgh firm of Miller & Entwisle from 1948 until the partnership ended in 1995, Miller continued practicing law until last December.

In 1956, Miller was named Pittsburgh Man of the Year in Law. He also received the Letterman of Distinction Award from Pitt's Varsity Letter Club; the Pitt business school's Distinguished Alumnus Award; and the Distinguished Alumnus Award from the University of Pittsburgh Omicron Delta Kappa.
