Bio: Scholarship started (Newspaper clipping of unknown date)
Harry "Lloyd" Miller and his wife of Polson have established the $5,000 Earl L Miller Music Scholarship Fund at the University of Montana in memory of their son.
Earl Miller, who in 1968 earned a bachelor's degree in music education at UM, died in June in New Hampshire. He was 43.
The endowment, set up through the UM Foundation, will provide an annual scholarship of about $250. UM music majors who have shown potential for success in their field of study will be eligible to apply.
Earl Miller had attained international recognition as a performing organizt, composer, teacher and lecturer. When he died, he was the organizt and music director at Christ Church in Andover, Mass. He was also the municipal organist for Portland, Maine, one of only two musicians nationwide to hold such a job.
He'd also been chapel organist at Brooks School in North Andover, Mass.
A member of the American Guild of Organists, Miller was a nationally recognized authority on the performance of Victorian and Edwardian music. After graduating from University of Montana, he did graduate work at American University in Washington DC.
