Biographical Note

Charles Otto "Chuck" Miller was a pioneer in developing the discipline of System Safety. Starting around 1950, he published and/or presented over 125 papers covering Human Factors Analysis, Aircraft Accident Investigation, Air Safety Management (both civil and military), Aircraft Design Safety, and Safety Engineering.

Miller (usually signed "C. O.") was born the youngest of six boys on 7 August 1924 to Mildred A. Bloomberg and Richard C. Miller (who had been born in Germany). His secondary education—at Glenville High School, in his birthplace of Cleveland, Ohio—was completed in three years, ending in January 1942, after which he served in World War II, first in the Navy (1942-1944), and then as a Marine Corps flight instructor and "Nightfighter" pilot (1944-1946). Miller enrolled in MIT in 1946, receiving his BS Degree in Aeronautical Engineering in 1949.

His first regular employment after college was as a test design engineer for Douglas Aircraft (1949-1950), when he worked at what is now Edwards Air Force Base in California, where he met both his wife, Ilene Falls of May, Idaho, whom he married in 1950; and Col. Dr. John Paul Stapp, who became a friend and reference, and whose letters and papers appear in this collection. Then Miller signed on with the Chance Vought Corporation (now Vought Aircraft Industries) as Staff Experimental Test Pilot (1950-1953), moving up to Staff Engineer, Cockpit Design and Flight Safety (1953-1959), and then Chief of Vought’s Operational Factors and Reliability Section in 1959. While at Vought, he worked on the Regulus I Guided Missile Program and the D558-II supersonic research vehicle.

Miller was a qualified commercial pilot, and he continued to serve in the Marine Corps Reserve until 1963. From 1962 to 1963, Miller was employed by Flight Safety Foundation, Inc. in New York. He followed up his BS with a Master’s in Aerospace Operations Management from the University of Southern California (1964-1967), where he spent five years (1963-1968) at the Institute of Aerospace Safety and Management, starting as Lecturer and progressing to Director of Research. As Director of the Bureau of Aviation Safety of the National Transportation Safety Board (16 August 1968-September 1974), he conducted airline accident investigations worldwide, including traveling to France, Italy, Spain, and Morocco for this purpose. In October of 1971, Miller was presented with the Flight Safety Foundation Distinguished Service Award.

After resigning from the NTSB for reasons of health, Miller started his own consulting business, System Safety, Inc., in Fairfax, Virginia. He returned to school in 1977 to study law at the Potomac School of Law in Washington, D.C., receiving his JD in 1980, while he was still a Registered Professional Engineer (Safety) in California. In August of 1988 Miller moved his consulting business to Sedona, Arizona, where he operated it until its sale in 1993, the same year he was inducted into the Arizona Aviation Hall of Fame. (See box 5/folder 6 "SSS (System Safety Society)" for a news release about Miller's sale of System Safety, Inc., to Embry-Riddle Professor William Waldock.) In 1995 Miller received the Laura Taber Barbour Air Safety Award from the Flight Safety Foundation. Miller was the first chairman of the Center for Aerospace Education Advisory Council at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Before his death, Miller and his wife moved to Wooster, Ohio, and it was near Wooster, at a hospital in Massillon, that he died on 20 October 2003 at the age of 79, survived by his wife, Ilene Falls Miller, five children, and 13 grandchildren.

Scope and Content

Charles O. Miller was a teacher, consultant, and engineer who collected documents both for professional and business reasons and for use as reference materials in his courses and consulting business. Therefore, there are two distinct parts to Miller’s papers: his professional files, including credentials, publications, drafts of papers and presentations, class notes and handouts, as well as information about organizations with which he corresponded; and Miller’s collection of materials relating to system (mainly aviation) safety and related topics, consisting mostly of the work of others. Both groups of papers contain correspondence, with faxes and email. However, the latter group includes large numbers of periodical articles, legal papers, conference brochures, programs, notes, and unpublished technical papers. Miller’s professional files are preserved in Series 1-3. The reference materials are preserved in Series 4 according to Miller’s system of document organization, as expounded in his "Guide to and Lessons Learned from My Accident Prevention Files" (Series 4, Subseries 1). Series 5 represents documents and photographs removed from the files in the first four series for reasons of preservation.

Original order was preserved wherever possible. Miller’s professional files were not received in any particular order except within the certificates group, the informational materials group, and the organizations group, in which order was preserved. Documents in subject and organization files were restored to what was believed to be an original alphabetical order by group or topic, according to Miller’s own coded information-retrieval system. Where there were loose materials or discrepancies in topic names, these were resolved by archivist Arel Lucas with help from Denise Vickers, aviation research specialist.

Container List

Series 1. Professional Information and Organization Files, 1944-2003. 5.5 linear feet
Miller’s orientation to filing was completely subject oriented, and some of his correspondence and papers can be found in a series of files labeled alphabetically by organization and preserved here as he organized them. (Usually the organization is alphabetized by its acronym rather than by its name.) These folders include not only correspondence but also contracts, organizational constitutions and minutes, reports, periodicals, booklets, brochures, periodical articles, posters, and other materials relating to each organization. The most extensive groups are the files relating to the Federal Aviation Administration, to Miller’s own consulting group (System Safety, Inc.), and to Flight Safety Foundation, for which he was project director of AvCir, a division of that company. A smaller group of miscellaneous papers includes Miller’s credentials in the form of certificates and awards, his business card from Chance Vought, and a stenographic notebook apparently used for inventory purposes, as well as later correspondence.
Subseries 1. Miscellaneous Papers, 1944-2003. 0.1 linear foot
This subseries includes miscellaneous professional papers that don’t fit into either of Miller’s filing schemes (for organizations and safety information). Included are his certificates and awards; late, unfiled correspondence; a business card from Chance Vought, an obituary, and lists of Miller’s accomplishments and works, including his bibliography on flight safety.
Original order has been preserved in the certificates, which were found in a binder. Other records were not received in any perceptible order, and in these undated items are first, followed by dated items in chronological order.
11 Certificates, 1944-1994
Original of Chance Vought "Cutlass" certificate is in the Pima Air and Space Museum, Tucson, Arizona.
12 Miscellaneous Papers, 1999-2003
These papers include a business card, late correspondence not filed, a stenographic notebook apparently used for inventory purposes, an obituary, and lists of Miller’s accomplishments and published and unpublished work.
13 Miscellaneous Files 1971-1980
This file was given its title before receipt and includes aviation accident statistics, a portion of a periodical article by Miller, and a copy of the Vol. 16, Summer 1980 issue of Hazard Prevention, the journal of the System Safety Society. This "Special Issue" consists entirely of Miller’s report "Safety Management Factors Germane to the Nuclear Reactor Accident at Three Mile Island, March 28, 1979," which was Section IV of Part 3 of Volume II of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s report on the accident.
Subseries 2. Organizations, 1945-2000. 5.4 linear feet
This subseries includes correspondence, publications, and other papers. These files were clearly in alphabetical order by the organization with which Miller was corresponding or of which he was a member. Also included are Miller’s conference brochures and notes, as well as details and publications from the organizations involved. A substantial portion of this subseries consists of Miller’s files on the Federal Aviation Administration, including their publications. A somewhat smaller group of folders consists of Miller’s files on his own consulting business (System Safety, Inc.), and an employer, Flight Safety Foundation.
Miller’s original order of alphabetical sequence, usually by organizational acronym, was preserved, along with the order within files.

Series 3. Teaching materials, 1963-1991. 1.25 linear feet
These materials were originally contained in three-ring binders and were apparently used mainly in teaching and consulting. No dates are given for most of the materials, but dates are noted when found. With two exceptions, all the materials appear to be for courses Miller taught. In one case, Miller apparently evaluated a course in bioengineering; the other binder appears to have contained Miller’s own notes on one of his law-school courses, on torts. These records include course outlines, notes, paper copies of transparencies, tests, students’ notes, and many other materials
Since there appears to be no other order, courses are alphabetized, and each binder is represented by a separate subseries.
Some of the original vinyl binders, the ones printed with unique information, have been preserved in Series 5 (Box 48).
Subseries 1. Advanced Safety Program Management and System Safety, 1966-1968. 2 folders

717-18 Miscellaneous Teaching Outlines, 1971-1989
Subseries 10. Miscellaneous Extra Transparencies, undated. 1 folder
These were apparently copies of materials to be projected ("transparencies") that were used in courses, seminars, lectures, etc. They are a mixed group of cartoons, graphs, charts, quotations, illustrations and other materials. Documents include "Accident Prevention Principles/Policies for Senior Aviation Managers" (2 pp).
719 Miscellaneous Extra Transparencies, undated
Subseries 11. Physiological Systems Study for Biomedical and Life Science Engineers, 1964. 1 folder
This single folder consists almost entirely of Miller’s copy of Harold Rickard’s "Physiological Systems Study for Biomedical and Life Science Engineers," a course outline "prepared for North American Aviation." The imprimatur of the University of Southern California is on the copy. Miller’s course notes for 1964 appeared at the back of the binder. Also included are "Personal comments on Rickard’s presentation."
720 Physiological Systems Study for Biomedical and Life Science Engineers, 1964
Subseries 12. Safety Management Teaching Notebook SF 200, 1989. 1 folder
This single folder consists of Miller’s teaching materials on a safety management course, "SF 200."There are an outline, notes, printed matter, lists, tests, and a case study.
721 Safety Management Teaching Notebook SF 200, 1989
Subseries 13. Safety Program Management courses, 1966-1968. 2 folders
The contents of this binder appear to be an amalgam of course outlines, notes and tests in this subject taught for the University of Southern California from 1966 to 1968.
722-23 Safety Program Management courses, 1966-1968
Subseries 14. SF 200 Transparencies, 1974. 1 folder
The copies of transparencies (originally for projection) in this folder appear to all be for a course called "SF 200." They include graphs, charts, quotations, illustrations, statements, and cartoons.
81 SF 200 Transparencies, 1974
Subseries 15. System Safety Indoctrination Seminars, 1965. 1 folder
The seminars represented by these materials may have been given to US Air Force personnel. Aside from teaching notes, this folder includes memoranda, copies of transparencies (or slides?), notes, and an outline.
82 System Safety Indoctrination Seminars, 1965
Subseries 16. Technical Aspects of Flight Vehicle Safety, 1977-1980. 1 folder
These teaching materials for Miller’s courses at the University of Southern California (USC) start with notes and tests from "SSM 584," apparently first taught from September 19 to November 10, 1977. Miller also taught the course for USC in Washington, D.C. in 1979 for the Master of Science in Safety Degree programs while pursuing his law degree there. Included are notes on "Intro & Basic Aero[dynamics]," "Helicopter Safety," "Wind Shear," "Stopping the “Aircraft," "Vortex" and other topics, with a course outline. There are memoranda, notes, and copies of transparencies.
83 Technical Aspects of Flight Vehicle Safety, 1977-1980
Subseries 17. "Torts," 1977-1978. 2 folders
Unlike most other materials in this subseries, these notes and materials for a course on torts appear to be for a course that Miller attended rather than taught. There is an examination labeled with the professor's name (Albert Garretson) and a date of January 1978, which coincides with the other course materials. Documents include a course outline, an examination, pages from Casenote Legal Briefs, and notes, with one set labeled "Exam Review."
84-5 "Torts," 1977-1978
Series 4. Informational Materials, 1941-2004 (bulk 1965-1995). 48.25 linear feet
This series consists mostly of a set of files of materials generally not authored by Miller but collected by him, apparently for use in teaching and consulting. These include periodical articles, periodicals, books, pamphlets, government pamphlets, regulations, legal papers, legal cases, and other documents that Miller apparently lent out to students and possibly clients for their information, as well as using them in his work.
This series is organized according to Miller's own information-retrieval system laid out in the document in Subseries 1, "Guide to and Lessons Learned...." Many documents are marked with Miller's subject headings about aeronautical/aerospace accident prevention and investigation and safety management.
Since these files were apparently meant to be arranged according to Miller's own system, if the order in which these records were received reflected that order, it was maintained. When files were not found to be arranged according to Miller's system, they were filed according to his code.
Subseries 1: Miller System Guides, 1987-1996. 0.5 linear foot
Miller found traditional library cataloging of aviation safety materials to be inadequate, as he explains in "Guide to and Lessons Learned...," in this subseries. He invented a filing system that uses decimal coding to outline dependent subjects and used this system for his personal files on topics of interest. His paper explicating the system, outlining it and providing a subject guide, and an earlier description of his system are included here for guidance in using the materials in this most voluminous portion of his collection. Since there are pages missing from the most recent draft--the one used to organize this series--the missing sections are included from another, although the beginnings and ends of pages do not fit.
86 Miller System Guides, 1987-1996
Subseries 2: 1.0 Accident Prevention, 1945-2001. 11.33 linear feet
This group is comprised of Miller's system of coding 1.0 through 1.2.6, including general accident prevention, safety techniques, accident investigation, pathology/forensic science, probable cause, recorders, communications, councils/committees, education/training, awareness/motivation, emergency procedures, hazard analyses, incident reporting/analysis, plans, regulations/specifications, research, surveys/inspections/audits, technical information systems, and system safety. In the last group Miller included subdivisions for definitions, discipline, models/factors, programs, requirements, and tasks. These materials consist mostly of printed matter of all kinds, from reports, posters, brochures, cartoons, and periodical articles, to published papers, but there are also notes, correspondence, and unpublished papers. These files not only concern aircraft accident investigation but analyze accidents involving nuclear power plants, automobiles, and other systems.
Because the topic "Safety Analysis" was not listed in Miller's codes, and because "Safety Analysis" files were mingled with "Hazard Analysis," and considering Miller's writings on the subject, all folders labeled "Safety Analysis" were placed into the 1.1.6 designation Miller used for "Hazard Analyses."

Subseries 6: 5.0 Design Safety, 1951-2001. 4.25 linear feet
In his system of information retrieval, Miller designated 5.0 to contain design issues as they related to safety. His subheadings are: Crash Injury Prevention, Crew Station and Cabin, Escape Systems, Environmental Factors (such as vibration, noise, and thermal factors), vehicle sub-systems (such as computers, electronic systems, fire prevention, and fuel systems, as well as landing gear), and Surface Controls. As with all the files in this series, this subseries consists mainly of printed matter--periodicals and articles, conference brochures, pamphlets, booklets, and flyers. However, there are substantial amounts of personal and business correspondence, unpublished papers by Miller and others, and Miller's handwritten memorializing meetings, telephone calls, reviews of material, and conference notes.

Subseries 7: 6.0 Design Support Function, 1945-2004. 9.75 linear feet
This section of Miller's system of information retrieval, has to do with design (mainly aircraft) as it relates to various functions of aircraft and their operators. These functions or systems were listed by Miller as aerodynamics (including fluid dynamics, and stability and control), data processing (including software), aviation medicine (including especially the factors that affect pilots such as alcohol and hypoxia), chemistry, maintenance engineering, operations research, physics (including atomic physics and lasers), quality assurance and control, reliability, robotics, statistical analysis, the factors that affect structures (corrosion, materials, fatigue, etc.), systems effectiveness and engineering (including value engineering), and ways of studying these systems, such as technical publications and test and evaluation. The biggest group in this subseries is the "human factors" (6.5) segment, which was a specialty of Miller's. As with all the files in this series, this subseries consists mainly of printed matter--periodicals and articles, conference brochures, pamphlets, booklets, and flyers. However, there are substantial amounts of personal and business correspondence, unpublished papers by Miller and others, and Miller's handwritten notes memorializing meetings, telephone calls, reviews of material, and conferences.

Subseries 8: 7.0 Reference Information, 1930-2001. 5 linear feet
This is the last group in Miller's system of information retrieval, which he labeled "Reference Information." This subseries thus contains files having to do with accident reports/indexes, bibliographies, book reports, legal cases (with some specific cases singled out for attention), glossaries/symbols, handbooks, historical information, "miscellaneous reading," lists of and information about consultants, statistical data, topographical maps and aeronautical charts, and information systems, including indexes and coding systems. As with all the files in this series, this subseries consists mainly of printed matter--periodicals and articles, conference brochures, pamphlets, booklets, and flyers. However, there are substantial amounts of personal and business correspondence, unpublished papers by Miller and others, and Miller's handwritten notes memorializing meetings, telephone calls, reviews of material, and conference notes.

Series 5. Materials Removed from Other Series, 1945-2001. 9.25 linear feet
Series is comprised of materials that are not appropriate for storage with and in the conditions of the papers in the other series. These are specifically vinyl binders, chemically unstable papers such as thermofaxes and newsprint, legal-size papers, oversize materials, and photographs. The binders, preserved for the information printed on them, and for possible exhibit purposes, are mainly from Series 3, Miller's collection of classroom materials. Until preservation scanning can be done, the box with chemically unstable media also includes fading carbon copies and more modern thermofaxes that, while fading, are not dangerous to the materials around them. Oversize materials Oversize boxes 52 and 53. All these materials are keyed to their original locations, with a separation sheet being kept in the original file.
This series is organized according to the types of materials (subseries) and the original box from which the materials were taken (files within subseries).
Subseries 1. Binders Removed from Other Series. 1.25 linear feet
These mostly vinyl binders were removed to better preserve the paper originally contained within them, but retained for the information printed on them and for possible exhibit purposes.
48 6 binders
Subseries 2. Unstable Media Removed from Other Series, 1942-2000 0.5 linear feet
This group of papers includes newsprint removed to better preserve the materials originally surrounding them. It also includes some duplicates on unstable media.
49 Unstable media removed from other series
Subseries 3. Legal Size Materials, 1945-2001. 0.5 linear feet
Where legal-size materials were found in the collection, given that the vast bulk of the collection is 8-1/2 x 11 inches in size or smaller, legal-size materials were removed as oversize and placed here with references to their original order and separation sheets at the original site.
50 Legal size materials
Subseries 4. Photographs, 1940s-1973 1 linear foot
Since the bulk of the collection is being kept in upright file folders in record storage boxes, photographs have been removed and placed in a separate box where they can lie flat. Separation sheets at the original sites match photograph descriptions in this box. Each photograph is being kept in its own envelope, without file folders; therefore this subseries is itemized. Most photographic materials are undated.
Arrangement is by size, then by box and folder number, except that one curled booklet is laid on top of flat photographs.

Subseries 5. Oversize Materials, 1954-2001. 6 linear feet
These materials were too large to fit in legal-size file folders and record-storage boxes without folding. They have been placed in two oversize boxes. In many cases, where papers followed one another or were related in the same document, they have been grouped for the purposes of context and retrieval.
Arrangement is in order of the boxes from which the items were removed.
