365体育官方网址The Society of Skeptics is one of Blair’s most storied programs, a fact that can undoubtedly be attributed to the vision and deep commitment of former history teacher Martin Miller, PhD, who helmed the program from the 1980s until he retired last June. Upon Dr. Miller’s retirement, history department chair Jason Beck took the reins after years of working closely with Dr. Miller and supporting the development and execution of the program.
