Re: University Professor Arthur Miller named a Commander of the Order of the British Empire

I am delighted to share the exciting news that University Professor Arthur R. Miller has been named a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) by Queen Elizabeth II, on the advice of her government, and included in her annual honors list. Professor Miller is one of the few Americans to have this Order bestowed upon him, and joins a prestigious list of past recipients that includes celebrated authors, scientists, artists, statesman, theatrical and media people. 

The CBE, one of the United Kingdomís highest honors, is an order of chivalry established by George V in 1917 that recognizes civilians and military personnel for public service and other distinctions. It recognizes Professor Millerís service rendered to the United Kingdom with respect to his generous gift of more than eighteen hundred Japanese woodblock prints by the nineteenth century artist Utagawa Kuniyoshi to the American Friends of the British Museum, which was exhibited at the Royal Academy in London in the spring of 2010 and at the Japan Society in New York in the fall of 2010, receiving unanimous critical acclaim in both cities, as well as the more than fifteen years of periodically moderating public policy issues and dialogues called Hypotheticals on the BBC and Granada Television. These highly entertaining and informative interactive high-level panel discussions on a wide range of critical contemporary issues were modeled after the well-known Fred Friendly dialogues that he also moderated for many years on PBS in this country.

Please join me in congratulating Arthur on this well-deserved honor.
