About Lynn Miller

Lynn Miller was born and grew up in Dodge City, Kansas (yes, that Dodge City), then earned bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of Kansas. He first saw an ocean when he flew over the Atlantic for a year of post-graduate work at the Institut de Hautes Etudes Internationales in Geneva, Switzerland. Then came a Ph.D in Politics from Princeton University.

 

He was briefly a Californian, beginning his academic career at UCLA, then moved back east to Philadelphia and Temple University, where he labored happily and, he hopes, productively, for quite a few years. He is now a Professor Emeritus of Political Science at Temple. At some point along his road to this point, he discovered that Philadelphia had become his hometown. When he retired, his goal was to devote his energies to writing and painting. And here he is.
