Jeffrey Glenn Miller was killed at Kent State University on May 4, 1970.  He transfered to Kent State from Michigan State just a few months before.

Jeff was shot in the mouth while standing in an access road that at one time led from Lake Hall to the Prentice Hall Parking Lot.  He was approximately 270 feet from the National Guard, making him the closest slain student.

Miller was buried in Hartsdale, New York. A memorial has recently been erected at his former high school in Plainview-Old Bethpage, New York.

The May 4th Task Force was founded by Kent State students and victims of the May 4 shootings. Alan Canfora, Robbie Stamps, and Dean Kahler were three of the charter members. The Task Force felt that the truth about what happened in May of 1970 had yet to be told and that the lessons to be learned from the tragedy should be part of a continuous and living history.

Since 1975 it has been the purpose of the M4TF to raise the level of awareness of students, faculty and the general public about the May 1970 shootings and the history of subsequent related events.
