Miller was designated an Honorary ARL Fellow in recognition of his enduring and distinguished service to the promotion of research throughout the ARL enterprise, and for his persistent support and encouragement of the ARL Fellows activities.

He placed the highest priority on strengthening the expertise and reputation of the research staff, mentoring and methods to attract and develop quality research staff and students, and opportunities to ensure access to first-class research facilities.

"I am deeply grateful and will treasure this honor above all others," Miller said shortly after his induction.

As an Honorary ARL Fellow, beyond his upcoming retirement, Miller will be invited to participate in future semi-annual meetings, and contribute with the collective expertise of the Fellows to the promotion of ARL.
