Changing the face of Ithaca


John Clair Miller, emeritus professor in the Department of Architecture, had an indelible impact on Ithaca’s landscape.

He worked on familiar buildings all over town: the Sagan House, the addition to Cornell’s Malott Hall, Contemporary Trends, Fire Station No. 9 and others. Now Miller's extensive architectural work – drawings, photographs, plans and elevations – has been digitized, described and made freely available online.

The project was the first installment in the library’s new College of Architecture, Art and Planning grants initiative, which supports building digital collections from Cornell’s faculty. Modeled after the Grants Program for Digital Collection in Arts and Sciences, the AAP program is funded exclusively by the library; interested faculty members can contact Marsha Taichman, visual resources and public services librarian.
