It's what Ed Miller does behind the scenes, however, that is a true boon to those who love history. Since 1993, Ed and his wife Joyce have quietly underwritten the publication of more than a dozen Naval Institute Press history projects. Although these books may not necessarily have the mass appeal to become bestsellers, they are important to scholars because they fill gaps in our understanding of naval history. It would have been difficult, if not impossible, for the Institute to publish these titles without the Millers' generosity.
Ed is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Syracuse University, served as chief planner for AMAX, an international mining company, and as chief financial officer of the government's Synthetic Fuels Corporation. He and Joyce volunteer at the White House, are active in the Library of Congress's James Madison Council, and have endowed a research fellowship at the Naval War College.
There are many other publishing projects in need of sponsors. For more information on book subvention opportunities, please contact Bill MacIntosh at (410) 295-1056 or firstname.lastname@example.org .

The topic of last month's Forum 2005 conference in Arlington, Virginia, was "Can We Meet the Mission with Today's Competing Priorities?" This question could also apply to corporate philanthropy and the many nonprofit organizations vying for attention. Our thanks to Boeing for stepping up as lead sponsor of this event.
