William P. Miller (1953-1971)

William P. Miller was influenced by Aaron W. Tracy, who said Miller should go into education. Miller served for 18 years, the longest tenure of any president at Weber.

“During his years at Weber, Miller not only saw the college grow in enrollment, course offerings and faculty size, but guided the school during its transition from a junior to a four-year college.” (John Sillito, Weber State College … A Centennial History, “Weber’s Principals and Presidents,” 1988)

In 1979, the school’s administration building was named in Miller’s honor.
