William Henry Harrison Miller (September 6, 1840–May 25, 1917) was an American lawyer and Attorney General of the United States.[1]

Born in Augusta, New York, Miller graduated from Hamilton College in 1861.[1] He studied law in the office of Chief Justice Morrison Waite, and was admitted to the bar in Peru, Indiana in 1865.[1] Miller practiced in that city for a short time, and was also the county school examiner.[1] For many years, he was an advisor to General Benjamin Harrison.[1] In 1889, President Harrison made Miller Attorney General.[1] He was Attorney General until 1893.[1]
