For 55 years, James Miltenberger taught piano at West Virginia University. For some alumni, he was the newest member of the music faculty, not much older than they were. And for others, he was one of the most experienced professors with the most stories to tell about music at WVU. This photo was taken in the Creative Arts Center’s Lyell B. Clay Concert Theatre before he retired this spring at his last performance as a member of the faculty with the WVU Symphony Orchestra. “Thousands of students and hundreds of faculty have passed through the School of Music during Jim’s tenure,” said Keith Jackson, interim dean of the College of Creative Arts. “I get to speak to many of those alumni now and they always share memories that include ‘Doc.’ His impact is immeasurable and irreplaceable. He really embodies this institution.”
