Biographical Sketch

Lloyd C. Miller was born in Fremont, Michigan in 1916. His family moved to Tulia, Texas when he was six-weeks old. Lloyd graduated from Tulia High School in 1934. He received a B.S. Degree in Agriculture at Texas Technological College in 1938 and went on to get his Masters Degree from the University of Nebraska in 1940. He married Katherine Mebus in 1941. Lloyd was employed by the Farm Security Administration as an assistant Farm Manager at Ropesville, Texas during 1941-1942. In 1948 he moved to Morton, Texas to manage the C.C. Slaughter Farms, a position he held for 26 years until his retirement. He also worked as a real estate agent and operated his own agricultural service managing other properties.

Lloyd served as president of the Cochran County Farm Bureau, and several terms as a director on the Plains Cotton Growers, Inc. Board of Directors. He also served as a local director of the High Plains Water District.
