Miller Lecture Series

Named in honor of former Georgia Governor and U.S. Senator Zell B. Miller, ’51, an alumnus and Lifetime Trustee of the College, the Miller Lecture Series was established in 1975 with a contribution from Miss Edna Heren, a former YHC English professor and mentor of Gov. Miller. This annual lecture that focuses on Georgia topics is supported by proceeds from the sale of Gov. Miller’s book, “The Mountains Within Me,” and by gifts from his friends. Gov. Miller chose Hal Gulliver, former editor of the Atlanta Journal Constitution, to present the first Miller Lecture in 1978.
