Biographical Note

Loren Miller, journalist, civil rights activist, attorney and judge, was born in Pender, Nebraska, in 1903 to former slave, John Miller, and Nora Herbaugh, a white Midwesterner of Dutch ancestry. Miller attended Kansas University and received his law degree from Washburn Law School in Topeka, Kansas in 1928. In 1929, Miller came to Los Angeles where he first worked as editor of the California Eagle, the oldest African American newspaper in Los Angeles, which he purchased in 1951. He also worked for The Los Angeles Sentinel with his cousin Leon H. Washington, Jr. In 1932, Miller and writer Langston Hughes went to the Soviet Union along with other African Americans to make a film on Negro life in Communist Russia. The film never got made. In 1933 Loren married Juanita Ellsworth, a social worker; they had two sons: Loren, Jr. and Edward Ellsworth. Loren passed the bar exam in California in 1933. Miller spent most of his legal career fighting discrimination (he assisted Thurgood Marshall with Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas), chiefly housing discrimination and real estate racial restrictive covenants. In 1945 he was the lawyer for African American actress Hattie McDaniel in the Los Angeles "Sugar Hill" housing case, which he won. In 1948 he successfully argued the US Supreme Court case Shelley v. Kraemer; the Supreme Court found that although real estate restrictive covenants were not unconstitutional in and of themselves, any enforcement of a restrictive covenant by a court would be unconstitutional under the 14th Amendment. He was a member of the Bars in Kansas and California. Miller was a member of and held offices in dozens of organizations including: the NAACP and its national legal committee; American Civil Liberties Union; National Urban League; Los Angeles Urban League; United States Commission on Civil Rights; League of American Writers; National Bar Association; National Conference of Christians and Jews; National Negro Congress; National Lawyers Guild; and the National Committee Against Discrimination in Housing. In 1964, Miller was appointed to the Los Angeles County Municipal Court. In 1966, Loren wrote The Petitioners: The Story of the Supreme Court of the United States and the Negro. He died in Los Angeles in July 1967.

Mold

The mold series contains the material that had mold on it when the Huntington Library received the collection. The folders have dummy folders in the collection where they would have been located if not for the mold. All of the items were cleaned and all of the mold is dead.

Arrangement

The papers are organized in 6 series following Miller's original organization as much as possible:
  • Correspondence (Boxes 1-16)
  • Personal Papers (Boxes 17-22)
  • Professional Papers (Boxes 23-47)
  • Publications, Magazines and Newspaper Clippings (Boxes 48-55)
  • Oversize (Boxes 56-59)
  • Items with mold (Boxes 1-13).
The folders in each series are arranged in alphabetical order and then chronologically.
Due to the original organization of the collection (Miller often put material dealing with several different subjects in the same folder as well as different types of material, i.e. correspondence, manuscripts, clippings, etc.) and with the decision to not take items out of their original folders, some subjects and material types can be found throughout the entire collection and not just in their corresponding series.

Note

Cataloger’s Notes
1. The cataloger supplied titles to folders that did not have them and to loose material that was collected and put into a folder (those titles are in brackets). If the title is not in brackets, then it was the original title on the folder created by Loren Miller.
2. Due to the size of the collection, the subject index is by no means complete. Several subjects such as civil rights, discrimination in housing, the Supreme Court, and African Americans are not included in the index because they are found throughout the entire collection.
Language: The majority of the collection is in English; there are several items in Russian.
