Herb Miller appointed to St. Elizabeth's initiative

Miller founded Western Development more than 40 years ago, developing Washington Harbour and the Shops at Georgetown Park, Potomac Mills, Market Square in Penn Quarter and Gallery Place near Verizon Center.

Miller and Gray were fraternity brothers at George Washington University at Tau Epsilon Phi, of which Gray became the first black member.
