Hello halphillips,

Nathan L. Miller was on the New York Court of Appeals from 1913 to
1915.  (The New York Court of Appeals is the highest court in New
York; the Supreme Court, despite its name, is not.)  I have found no
definitive statement of what he did between 1915 to 1920; but it
appears that during that time he worked for United States Steel and
was a lawyer in Syracuse.  In 1920, he took a prominent role as a
delegate to the Republican National Convention in Chicago, and then
ran successfully for Governor of New York.
