Scott C. Miller
I am an economic historian at the Darden School of Business and the Miller Center of Public Affairs. Born and raised in Denver, Colorado, I have made Charlottesville home and could not be happier about it.
The proud product of public schools, I received my BA from Vanguard University of Southern California. I then earned an MA at George Mason University before completing my Ph.D in History at the University of Virginia. I also served as a postdoctoral fellow in economic and business history at the Yale School of Management's International Center for Finance.
After undergrad, I conducted research on World War II aviation for four years before entering grad school. In the Spring of 2021, I was offered a chance to return to UVa with a duel position at Darden and the Miller Center.
I am lucky to have married the women I went to prom with, who is not an academic and the person on earth I most respect. Also, I am dyslexic, don't like museums, and couldn't care less about the actual transacting of money, so how I became an economic historian is beyond me.
