About Scott Miller

Miller is a Ph.D. candidate in history at the University of Virginia whose research examines the reformation of the American economy after independence from Great Britain. His work explores how a trans-regional cohort of merchant-entrepreneurs recreated commercial networks, domestic markets, and mechanisms of trust in the midst of post-Revolutionary economic, political, and social turmoil. 

Scott is the recipient of James C. Rees Entrepreneurship Fellowship funded by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation
