Captain Richards T. Miller
Object Name:
Print, Photographic
Captain Miller's interest in engineering began in his childhood when he was fascinated by airplanes and trains. His neighbor, who was a Lieutenant Commander and naval instructor at the time, garnered young Captain Miller's interest in boats as well through models he made out of tin cans. Captain Miller says he has been hooked on boats ever since. During his time as a naval engineer, Captain Miller worked all over the
United States and a variety of boats. He spent the entirety of World War II in Annapolis supervising construction and delivering PT boats up to New York. During that time, Captain Miller became an expert on the history of the yacht yards in Annapolis.
