In Memoriam: Phillip L. Miller, 71

The CAA mourns the passing of member Phillip Lowden Miller, 71, who died of cancer on November 20, 2009.

Phil was in the Credit Training Program in 1968 and subsequently in the Chase Paris office.

Phill was the great-grandson of George Pullman, inventor of the railroad sleeping car, and a grandson of Frank Lowden, governor of Illinois from 1917 to 1921.

He lived in Oregon, Ill., and was active in civic affairs in Chicago, where he was a life board member and president emeritus of the George M.Pullman Educational Foundation.  Since 1950, the Foundation has made a critical difference in the lives of more than 10,000 academically promising, economically disadvantaged Chicago-area students pursuing a post-secondary education. 

Phil is survived by his wife, Bonnie, and his daughters, Kim and Jennifer, and four grandchildren.  Donations can be made to the George M. Pullman Educational Foundation.
