[More on John Miller]

[John Miller Speech at Dutchess Community College, Poughkeepsie, NY, November 28, 1990]
Transcribed by Ward Miller:
Here is the famous talk John gave at age 84.
He flew on his 100th birthday, and died at 102.
He was also an inventor and held a patent for a unique mount for a rifle scope,
manufactured it in his garage and sold it thoughout the world. Once zeroed in,
you could remove the scope from the rifle, then reinstall it and it was perfectly
in register again. It was the finest scope mount available at the time.
May he rest in peace.
