Larry L. Miller passed away on March 25. The son of Byron and Margie Miller, he was born in Waterloo Iowa, on June 29, 1939.

He received a B.A. from Colorado State College and was named an outstanding alumnus from that institution. Dr. Miller earned a Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Illinois and joined Colorado State University becoming a full Professor.

At the library, he organized art exhibits, featuring over 800 artists during his tenure. For his innovative effort, he was named San Diego County Volunteer of the Year in 2017.
