About the Norman and Louis Miller Lecture in Public Understanding

The Louis Miller Lecture in Public Understanding was established at St. Norbert College in 1993 by the Norman Miller Family Foundation in honor of the life of Louis Miller, a native of Green Bay who died in 1989. At that time, Norman Miller, an area developer and longtime advocate for human rights, stated, “I am pleased that my brother’s name will be memorialized through a continuing series [of lectures] at St. Norbert College that will promote peace and better understanding.” When Norman himself passed away in 2008, his name was added to the title of these annual lectures.

Continuing the legacy of the men for which it is named, the Norman and Louis Miller Lecture in Public Understanding promotes unity, communication and tolerance among different cultures, religions, ethnicities and traditions. The lecture series celebrates human dignity and encourages better understanding between people, both domestically and internationally.
