and Marvin's wife, Terry. Ms. Miller passed away Tues. at the age of 90.
Members and staff of the Major League Baseball Players Association were saddened to learn of the passing of Terry Miller, the wife of founding Executive Director Marvin Miller, on Tuesday, October 27. She was 90.
Terry Morganstern Miller was an accomplished academic who earned a Ph.D. in psychology at the University of Pittsburgh and worked as a clinical psychologist. When the couple moved back to New York, she returned to academics and was an associate professor at the City University of New York when she retired in 1980.
Marvin Miller met Terry in 1936, when she was a 17-year-old Brooklyn College student and they married three years later. In his book, A Whole Different Ballgame, Marvin described Terry as a woman who “personified femininity and strength.” They would have celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary on Dec. 24.
In addition to Marvin Miller, Terry Miller is survived by their daughter, Susan, and their son, Peter, who lives in Kamakura, Japan with his wife, Yuko, and their son, Neil.
“Our thoughts today are with Marvin and his family,” MLBPA Executive Director Donald M. Fehr said. “We fondly recall the many moments, both significant and small, we shared with Terry as well as the warmth, support and well-informed counsel she often provided. We will miss her presence.”
Remembrances can be sent to: Marvin Miller, c/o Donald M. Fehr, executive director, MLBPA, 12 E. 49th St., New York, N.Y. 10017.
The Business of Sports Network passes along their deepest condolences to the Miller family, and those at the MLBPA mourning Ms. Miller's passing.
