Congratulations on this achievement, Meral! Your team is so proud of you!

About Joseph Miller (from CUA):

This award is named after a much beloved alumnus and professor of the School of Architecture and Planning, Joseph Miller. For many, Joe embodied the spirit of the school, as a master architect and charismatic figure who, at one time, could name all alumni.

At the age of 14, Joe was discovered by Frederick Murphy, the chair of Architecture in the school’s early years. Even at this young age, Joe’s talent was evident. But being from a Jewish family of modest means, he had limited options for higher education. Nevertheless, Frederick Murphy insisted that he apply to The Catholic University of America, going so far as to hold a long discussion with Joe’s father, a butcher in D.C.

Fortunately, Joe applied, starting a lifelong relationship with the University. In addition to creating a successful architecture practice, he served as a part-time professor. Eventually, he was hired full time and became an associate dean of the School of Architecture and Planning.
