Leon L. Miller, M.D., Ph.D.

Introduction

Leon L. Miller, M.D., Ph.D. was a physician and biochemist known for his development of a technique for rat liver perfusion (RLP), and for his studies of the liver in the biosynthesis of plasma proteins. Miller joined the faculty of the University of Rochester School of Medicine & Dentistry in 1938 and became professor emeritus in 1978. He continued to teach and do research into the 21st century. Dr. Miller’s papers were transferred from his office and laboratory to the Miner Library several months after his death. Contained in forty-one boxes and occupying thirty-three linear feet, the collection largely reflects Dr. Miller’s research activity (i.e., grant applications, laboratory notebooks, publications), and to a lesser extent his teaching. Processing of the Miller collection was completed in October 2015.

Biography

Leon L. Miller, M.D., Ph.D. (early 1950s)Leon Lee Miller was born in Rochester, New York on December 7, 1912, one of four children born to Abraham Calmen Miller, a Russian-Jewish immigrant and wrought-iron worker, and Hinda Rosenblum Miller. He attended East High School in the city of Rochester. Miller subsequently entered Cornell University from which he received his undergraduate degree (chemistry) in 1934 and his Ph.D. (organic chemistry) in 1937. Miller remained at Cornell as a research fellow through September 1937. In October of that year he began work in the pharmaceutical division of Calco Chemical Co. in New Jersey, but was laid-off early in 1938. Miller was not long unemployed when he was approached by George Hoyt Whipple, M.D., founding dean of the University of Rochester School of Medicine & dentistry and chairman of the department of pathology, to accept a position in Rochester. Whipple was in need of a chemist in the pathology department to assist in his metabolic studies. Miller joined the department in 1938 as a Lilly Fellow in Pathology and Pharmacology with the title instructor in pathology, biochemistry and pharmacology. He was responsible for the biochemical end of Whipple’s studies of hemoglobin and plasma protein production.

Although he had never considered medicine as an undergraduate or graduate student, Miller approached Whipple after two years in Rochester about pursuing a medical degree. As early as 1939 he began to take classes within the School of Medicine while continuing his research responsibilities in the pathology department (see class notes in Box 2, Folder 6). Miller received his medical degree (with honor) in 1945 with a thesis entitled “Proteins and protein factors in liver injury” (Box 2, Folder 7). He was appointed assistant professor of biochemistry in June 1945, but left Rochester to accept a position at Jefferson Medical College in 1946 as assistant professor of biochemistry. About this time, his older brother, Mitchill William “Mitch” Miller (1911-2010), a 1932 Eastman School of Music graduate, was beginning a career in New York as a jazz musician and recording industry executive.

Early in 1948 Miller was persuaded to return to Rochester by William Freer Bale, Ph.D., who headed the biophysics division of the Department of Radiation Biology in the School of Medicine. Miller was appointed associate professor of biochemistry and head of the Section on Tracer Chemistry for the Atomic Energy Project (see Bale correspondence, Box 4, Folder 3). In 1958 he was made professor of radiation biology, and in 1978 professor emeritus of biochemistry and biophysics.

Miller summarized his research activities between 1948 and 1990 in a document appended to one of his later curricula vitae (Box 1, Folder 1). In the 1940s he “participated in studies using 15N- and 14C-lysine not only to characterize the metabolism of plasma proteins, and labeled hemoglobin, and to characterize the life cycle of the red cell, but also to work out in detail, the intermediary metabolic steps in the overall metabolism of lysine.” Miller regarded as his most important contribution the “development of the isolated liver perfusion technique which fulfilled the need for a method allowing the protracted (up to 24 hours) direct study of the liver, uncomplicated by the contribution from other organs. We demonstrated that the isolated perfused rat liver simulated the physiological behavior of the liver in the intact rat with respect to metabolism of glucose, amino acids, and the synthesis and secretion of plasma proteins and bile production.” The use of the isolated perfused rat liver led to multiple discoveries described in this same document. In addition to his research, Miller was highly regarded an an educator of medical students, graduate students and post-doctoral fellows.

Miller was the author of more than 150 journal articles and book chapters. He was a member of the American Chemical Society, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Society of Biological Chemists, the Society of Experimental Biology and Medicine, the American Society for Cancer Research, the American Society for Radiation Research, and the the New York Academy of Sciences.

In 1935 Miller married Pearl Sternberg, with whom he had three children. They were divorced in 1956. In 1958 Miller married Elizabeth Plumb, with whom he also had three children. Leon L. Miller died in Rochester on September 3, 2010. A very interesting forty-five minute oral history with Dr. Miller was recorded in 1990. It is accessible from this link.

Organization of the Miller Papers

Institutions & Societies (Boxes 1-3)

This series provides a limited sample of material documenting Dr. Miller’s involvement in national and international scientific societies, attendance at conferences, participation in organizational and institutional committees, etc. Two of the three boxes in this series pertain to his activity within the University of Rochester School of Medicine & Dentistry. The third box, containing his work on the Admissions Committee, is closed to the public indefinitely.

Correspondence (Boxes 4-7)

This comparatively small series contains some very interesting correspondence with Dr. Miller’s colleagues and former students. The bulk of this correspondence spans the years 1960-1980. This series is arranged alphabetically by correspondents’ last names. Individuals with whom Dr. Miller maintained a larger volume of correspondence have individual folders integrated into the alphabetical series.

Teaching (Boxes 8-9)

In addition to his research, Dr. Miller maintained an active teaching schedule within the Dept. of Radiation Biology & Biophysics. This series contains syllabi, class schedules, lecture notes, exams and related material pertaining to Dr. Miller’s instruction of medical and graduate students. These materials are arranged chronologically.

Theses (Boxes 10-11)

This collection of doctoral and masters theses supervised by Dr. Miller is arranged alphabetically by authors’ names. It is uncertain whether this collection contains the theses of all those who trained under Dr. Miller.

Publications (Boxes 12-13)

Dr. Miller was the author of 151 journal articles and book chapters. The publications contained in this series are nearly complete and are arranged chronologically by date of publication. A complete bibliography of Dr. Miller’s publishing history is included in his 1996 curriculum vitae (Box 1, Folder 1).

Grant Applications (Boxes 14-15)

These two boxes of grant applications, acceptances and renewals provide an overview of Dr, Miller’s research activity from the early 1950s through the mid-1980s. The bulk of this series dates from the early 1950s through the mid-1970s, and includes his work on plasma and tissue protein metabolism in normal and experimental disease states (1951-77); plasma and tissue protein studies with isotopically labeled substances (1953-64); net synthesis of plasma proteins by perfused liver (1966-75); and other grant-funded research.

Laboratory Notebooks, 3-Ring (Boxes 16-29)

The twenty-three boxes of laboratory notebooks in this collection represent the single largest category of material among Dr. Miller’s papers. These notebooks record work done in Dr. Miller’s laboratory by himself, by technicians under his supervision, and by graduate students. Dr. Miller’s laboratory notebooks were maintained in two formats: material inserted into three-ring binders, and material recorded in student composition books. The laboratory notebooks in the Miller collection are divided according to format.

When transferred to the Miner Library, virtually all the three-ring binders were found to be in varying states of disintegation that threatened the integrity of their contents. These materials were therefore removed from the binders and transferred to acid-free folders, which in turn have been boxed. The labelling of each folder copies the label on the original three-ring binder.

The content of the fourteen boxes of three-ring laboratory notebooks in the Miller collection are arranged chronologically. The earliest three-ring notebook was dated 1943, but the bulk of this collection spans the years 1950-1986. The three-ring series seems to contain more bulk data, summaries and graphs than the composition series. For an understanding of research activity in Dr. Miller’s laboratory, the content of the three-ring series of laboratory notebooks should be compared with notebooks for the same years in the composition book series.

Laboratory Notebooks, Composition Books (Boxes 30-39)

The laboratory notebooks in the composition book series appears to represent daily laboratory activity than the compiled data found in the three-ring series. The ten cartons of notebooks in this series span the years 1934-2000. Use of these notebooks should be coordinated with materials of the same period contained in the three-ring series and with the grant applications in Boxes 14 and 15.

Bound Collections of Computer-Generated Data (not boxed)

An apparently incomplete series of computer-generated summary data on rat liver perfusion studies conducted in Miller’s laboratory between 1975 and 1980. The data collected in these volumes obviously overlaps with the data recorded in the 3-ring and composition book laboratory notebooks.
