Former Governor Baliles to Lead Miller Center

Former Virginia Governor Gerald Baliles has been named the fifth director of the Miller Center of Public Affairs at the University of Virginia. The Miller Center is a nonpartisan institution dedicated to studying U.S. national and international policy, with a special emphasis on the American presidency. Baliles will retire from the Hunton Williams law firm on March 31st and take the reins of the Center on April 1.

Gov. Baliles replaces Philip Zelikow, who left in January to become counselor of the U.S. Department of State.

Baliles, with his long record of public service at the highest levels, is an inspired choice. I can’t help but note that like so many other organizations in Virginia, the Miller Center conducted a “national search” but found a distinguished choice nearby in the Commonwealth.
