William Henry Miller (1848-1922) was one of Ithaca's most prolific local architects, dramatically reshaping the built environment of Ithaca and Cornell University. After attending Cornell for two years, he began practicing locally, designing such landmarks as Cornell's McGraw Tower, Uris Library, Risley Hall, and Barnes Hall, and numerous private residences and local churches. Check out the corresponding PocketSights tour of downtown Ithaca for more information about Miller's work.
