Interview with Rev. Orloff Miller
QUESTION 27
INTERVIEWER:

OK, YOU PERSONALLY, TELL ME WHAT, HOW ORLOFF MILLER HAD BEEN CHANGED BY THIS TIME IN HIS LIFE.

Rev. Orloff Miller:

Every now and then I know that my own personal life has been affected by the Selma encounter and largely because of Jim. Jim and I were professional acquaintances, we weren't close friends. Before I went to Selma in December we had chanced to meet in the lobby of a theater in Boston; he was taking his children and I was taking my children to a holiday movie, "The Sound of Music," so I guess I identified very much with Jim and his family and I visited them in Casper, Wyoming several times after Jim's death. I talked to Marie on the 10th anniversary of Selma, Jim's wife. And I know that I'm never involved in a social concern with what Jim's also involved in a way, because I'm there in some sense because I know Jim would want to be there. And I don't have to ask myself twice whether I should be involved. Because I know Jim would want to be involved and so I've kept on in various social concerns ever since. Yes, my life was changed.
