He also taught at the University of Florida for a short time prior to entering the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II. Following World War II, Miller earned a second masters degree from Princeton Universityin 1958. He served on the faculty of Tufts University, as university archivist, from 1952 to 1964. In 1969, the Universalist Historical Association employed Miller to research and publish a comprehensive history of Universalism in America.
