The money from 1951 graduate Leonard Miller, 76, and his wife, Carolyn, will help pay for the center’s relocation to a larger, more permanent home and to endow two new professors to teach on the subject.

It is the latest donation from the couple over the past five years.

“Thanks to the Millers’ thoughtful and purposeful philanthropy, the University of Vermont will stand even taller among the handful of institutions worldwide known for the excellence of their teaching and scholarship surrounding one of the defining events in human history,” UVM President Daniel Fogel said.
