The Millar Family Fund

James Millar

Professor James Millar and his family established the Millar Family Fund in April 2007 to support an annual lecture on economics or economic history in Russia (or the Soviet Union) as well as student and faculty research at the Institute. Professor Millar was the director of IERES from 1989-2001 and Professor of Economics and International Affairs at GW until his retirement in 2004, when he became Professor Emeritus. The fund reflects Professor Millar's lifelong dedication to the study of Russian and Soviet economics and his strong ties to the Institute and to GW.

Sadly, after a battle with pancreatic cancer, Professor Millar passed away far too young on November 30, 2008. We will continue to carry out his wishes with the Millar Family Fund, which currently supports the James Millar Lecture series, Millar Undergraduate Thesis Research Grants, Millar Summer Graduate Student Travel Grants, and a variety of other important IERES events and activities.

We invite friends, colleagues and other supporters to contribute to the Fund, which is supported by the rest of Professor Millar's Family. Please make out a check to The George Washington University with the Millar Family Fund in the memo line and send the check to:
