He is a brother of Frank H. Miller and a son of Leo F. and Theresa Miller, Sr., mentioned in connection with his brother’s sketch on another page of this work.

On the 1st of June, 1908, he became connected with the Commercial Press Company, which was organized in 1902 and of which his brother, F. H. Miller, became a stockholder in 1905. Since that time all of the stock has been acquired by the Miller brothers, and with the reorganization of the business in 1909, Leo F. Miller became the president of the company and has so continued, bending his energies to the further development of the business and the extension of its trade relations.

On the 1st of June, 1912, Mr. Miller was united in marriage to Miss Ruth Mildred Fairbanks, of Racine, and they have a daughter. Dorothy.
