Thomas Byron Miller (August 11, 1896 – March 20, 1976) was a Republican member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Pennsylvania.

Biography[edit]

Thomas B. Miller was born in Plymouth, Pennsylvania. He attended the law school of Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. He was a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity. During the First World War, Miller served as a second lieutenant in the Sixteenth Field Artillery from February 25, 1918, until his discharge as a first lieutenant on September 23, 1919.

On January 23, 1942, Miller was chosen by the Luzerne County Republican Committee as their nominee to fill the vacancy in the Seventy-seventh Congress caused by the resignation of United States Representative J. Harold Flannery.[1] Miller's Democratic opponent was Daniel J. Flood, and in the May 1942 special election, Miller prevailed, serving in the remainder of Flannery's term. Miller was reelected to the Seventy-eighth Congress, but was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1944.
