Biographical Note

Henry S. Miller Jr. (1914-2009), a prominent business and community leader in Dallas, is known for shepherding his father’s small, local real estate firm to the largest establishment in the state of Texas specializing in real estate brokerage services. Founded by Henry S. Miller Sr. in 1914, the Henry S. Miller Company will celebrate its centennial anniversary in 2014.

Henry S. Miller (1890-1968) and Carmen Jablow Miller (1892-1990) had three children: Jack Miller, Carmen Miller Michael, and Henry S. Miller Jr. Jack Miller was killed in Guadalcanal in World War II, and Carmen (1926-2013) was a professor emerita of psychology at University of Texas, Southwestern.

Henry S. Miller Jr. graduated Forest Avenue High School in Dallas, attended Southern Methodist University, and received a Bachelor of Science in Commerce degree in 1934. He joined his father’s company in 1938 after working in the insurance business. Miller served in the U.S. Army during World War II from 1942 until 1945, seeing action in both North Africa and Italy, and rising to the rank of Major by the time his service was finished.

Helen Juanita Lewis (1912-2005), was born on Valentine’s Day in Kiowa, Oklahoma, the daughter of a Methodist minister. She attended the University of Oklahoma, and taught at both the high school and junior college level. She first met Miller while working at a center in Hot Springs, Arkansas for returning World War II servicemen. Lewis and Miller were married in 1945 until her death in November 2005. Her children from a previous marriage, Vance and Patsy, were eleven and nine when the Millers wed. Later, the Miller’s children Henry III and Jacqueline (Jackie) were born in Dallas.

Henry and Juanita Miller were patrons of the arts in Dallas. They helped found the Dallas Opera, and provided the new organization with a $200,000 loan to ensure financial support during its early years. In addition, Juanita founded the Texas Women’s Association for Symphony Orchestras, currently the Texas Association for Symphony Orchestras. She was also involved in the Dallas Ballet, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra League, the Dallas Theater Center, and the Dallas Museum of Art. Juanita’s arts activities were not limited to Dallas. She also supported cultural and artistic endeavors in Fort Worth and Richardson. In 1982, Miller Jr. led the $40 million fundraising effort to build the Meyerson Symphony Center.

Juanita Miller received recognition for her work in the arts community, including a 1986 James (Jas.) K. Wilson Award, a Woman of the Year Award from Les Femmes du Monde in 1999, and the Dallas Historical Society Award for Excellence in the Arts. Both Juanita and Henry S. Miller Jr. were also awarded honorary doctorates from Northwood University. She also served as president of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra League, vice president of the Dallas Ballet, and board member for the Dallas Theater Center and the Dallas Opera. In 1990 the Miller family was awarded the YWCA Family of the Year award. Juanita Miller died at the age of 93 in 2005.

The original partnership between Henry S. Miller, Jr. and his father was incorporated in 1960, whereupon Miller Jr. became Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. As such, he expanded company operations into the areas of property management, office and retail properties, and specialized real estate services. He also grew the corporation’s insurance business in 1968 by establishing a partnership with insurance businessman James B. Strange. During this time the family business included Henry S. Miller Co., Insurance; Henry S. Miller Co., Realtors; and Henry S. Miller Management Corp.

Vance Miller became President in 1970, and the company’s holdings continued to expand through the next two decades. One of the most notable properties was Highland Park Village, which was designated a national historical landmark in 2000. The Miller family sold the company to Grubb & Ellis in 1984, and in 1991 Vance Miller re-purchased the Henry S. Miller residential division from Grubb & Ellis. In 1993 the two companies parted ways, and in 1994 the Miller family merged with two other companies to form Miller Commercial from 1993-2003. After Vance C. Miller's death in 2013, Vance Miller’s son, Gregory, became CEO and president of Henry S. Miller Companies.

Miller Jr. was deeply involved in civic affairs within the city of Dallas, as well as within the SMU community. He was a member of the board of governors for the American Society of Real Estate Councilors, the Dallas Citizens Council, the Dallas Metropolitan YMCA, the Better Business Bureau. In addition to serving as president of the Dallas Rotary Club, he served as president for the first seven years of the Dallas Opera. Miller Jr. was also active with Southern Methodist University School of Business Alumni Association, the SMU Board of Development, and served as president of the National Alumni Association for SMU (1968). In 1978, he received the Distinguished Alumnus Award from SMU.

He has also received recognition for his work in furthering the arts in Dallas, especially the Dallas Opera. Honors bestowed upon him include the 1982 Dallas Historical Society Award for Contribution to the Arts, induction into the Texas Business Hall of Fame in 1988, and the Outstanding Business Leader Award from the Northwood Institute in 1982. Henry S. Miller Jr. died at the age of 95 in 2009.

Acquisition Information

Gift, Henry S. Miller, Jr., 2001.

Gift, Juanita and Henry S. Miller Jr. family, 2013.

Processing Information

The original gift in 2001 included 8.5 linear feet of material dated 1932-1999. The title of the collection was named by the donor family.

The second gift from the family in 2013 included much more of Henry S. Miller Jr.’s business records and family papers. Books were cataloged and shelved in DeGolyer Library. Framed items were unframed, and oversize items were placed in oversize boxes at the end of the collection. The last two editions of the Dallas Times Herald were transferred to the Dallas Times Herald series in the Belo records, A2010.0001. Duplicate materials and materials out of scope were returned to the Miller family.

Since the second donation of family papers was substantially larger than the first, the decision was made to merge the original donation with the chronological order of the second donation for better access.

Series 8:
Clippings, 1900s-2000s
14 Boxes

Boxes 36X-40X are arranged chronologically by family member. A set of clippings in boxes 41X-45X kept by the Henry S. Miller Company was not merged, and these are mostly photocopies of clippings adhered to black paper encased in mylar. Boxes 46-49 were part of the original donation and are arranged chronologically, folded, and are mostly duplicates of boxes 36X-40X. These newspaper clippings are acidic, folded, and will not last forever, so the archivist decided not to weed or merge the sets of clippings. The last two editions of the Dallas Times Herald were transferred to the Dallas Times Herald series in the Belo records, A2010.0001.
