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