From Country Doctor to Lawyer


Samuel F. Miller was confirmed by the U.S. Senate on July 16, 1862 and took his oaths five days later. Born in Richmond, Kentucky, Miller first worked as a doctor before pursuing the law, passing the bar at age 31. Opposed to slavery, Miller moved from Kentucky to the free state of Iowa where he opened a law practice in Keokuk. Appointed to the Supreme Court by President Abraham Lincoln, Miller was the first Justice to serve on the Court from a state west of the Mississippi River. He served on the Court until 1890, authoring over 600 opinions.

A portrait of Justice Miller is currently on view as part of the Forgotten Legacy: Judicial Portraits by Cornelia Adèle Fassett exhibition at the Court.
