    Biographical history

    James Edgar "Bud" Miller was born in Kitscoty, Alberta in 1923. He served in the Royal Canadian Air Force as a bombardier. After the war, he attended the University of Saskatchewan, where he received a degree in agriculture. He married Margaret Quinn (1925-2015) in 1947, and together they had five children: Ken, Sandra, Bill, Joe and Dan. They operated a family farm near Kitscoty.

    After an unsuccessful campaign as a Liberal candidate in the 1948 provincial election, he was elected as Progressive Conservative MLA in 1971 for the Lloydminster electoral district. He served as Associate Minister for Public Lands and Wildlife (1979-1982). He retired at the dissolution of the Legislative Assembly in 1986.

    After leaving office, he became involved in a number of community organizations, including Kitscoty Town Council.

    He died in Edmonton in 2015. Bud Miller All-Seasons Park in Lethbridge is named in his honour.
