David A. Miller    

DAVID A. MILLER, proprietor of the Allentown Morning Call, was born at Gilberts, Monroe County, Pa., April 7, 1869, the son of Dr. Edward P. and Flora A. (Peter) Miller. When four years old, his parents moved to Saegersville, Lehigh County, Pa., where his boyhood was spent. He attended the district schools and the Lehighton High School, graduating with honors in 1888. He then taught two terms in the Saegersville school, after which he went to the Keystone State Normal School, graduating in 1891. After having studied several months at Palatinate College, he entered Muhlenberg College, from which institution he graduated in 1894. He immediately took up news paper work, becoming a reporter on the paper of which he was to become the owner, and which was then known as The Critic. He soon secured an interest in the newspaper, which at the time was a struggling sheet. Later he became the sole owner, and by perseverance, far-sighted business methods and independent policies developed the property until his journal, now known as The Allentown Morning Call, has reached the highest position In circulation in the Lehigh Valley and is regarded as one of the most influential newspapers in eastern Pennsylvania. Mr. Miller is keenly interested in the social, political educational and religious life of the community. He is a member of the Masonic order; Chamber of Commerce; Lehigh County Historical Society; Associated Charities; board of directors of the Free Library. He is actively interested in the Laymen’s Movement, and is a member of the Board of Foreign Missions of the Reformed Church of the United States. In 1900 he married Blanche A., daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Louis C. Berkemeyer, of Allentown. Their children are Robert K., Samuel W., Donald P., Paul B., Margaret B. and Julia A. Miller.
