Medical Pioneer. Born in Strongsville, Ohio, he was doctor physicist, professor of astronomey, acoustician and accomplished amateur flautist. Following the discovery of X-rays in 1895, he used cathode tubes to make some of the first photographic images of concealed objects, including a bullet within a man's limb. He continued to work on his experimental techniques and by 1904, was conducting thousands of measurements and eventually developing the most sensitive interferometer in the world at that time. By the 1920s, he produced the first full x-ray scan of the entire human body and performed over 200,000 observations. He was elected to the National Academy of Science in 1921, was a member of the National Research Council, 1927 to 1930 and published many manuals designed for the performance of experimental problems in physics. In his spare time, Miller composed music and designed and collected flutes. After his death, his will left his flute collection, numbering more than 1,500 instruments, to the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.
