In Memoriam: Paul Miller

by jeeg 20. October 2010 18:23

It is with great sadness that I announce that Paul Miller passed away today in Seattle after a long fight with Cancer.  Many of you know Paul as a tremendous advocate for disability rights who served two Presidents and was one of the longest serving commissioners of the EEOC.  He was the primary architect of President Clinton's Executive Order outlawing genetic discrimination for federal employees and he worked tirelessly on the successful passage of GINA.

 

I worked with Paul for many years on GINA, he was a a personal colleague as well as a long time friend to CRG and one of the nicest

people you could ever know.   Paul was a brilliant lawyer, prolific writer on the legal, social and ethical issues of the Human Genome Project, and incredibly dedicated to public service and the public interest.  His passing is a great loss and our hearts go out to his wife and children.

 

There will be a memorial service for colleagues and friends in Washington DC.
