George L. Miller ’50 of Littleton, Colo., died on April 8, 2010. Born in 1924, George served in the U.S. Army from 1942 to 1945 and was discharged as a master sergeant. A member of the Sigma Nu fraternity, he graduated from Mines with a professional degree in petroleum refining engineering. In 1946, he married Virginia Lindberg, with whom he had five children. George worked for the Pure Oil Company for 10 years, and for UOP in Des Plaines, Ill., for 25 years. While with UOP, he lived in Japan for five years and spent six years in Saudi Arabia, where he was advisor to Dr. Abdulhadi Taher, the governor of Petromin. After leaving Saudi Arabia, George became project manager of the Solvent Refined Coal Program in Denver before it was closed for budgetary reasons.
