Miller and Pflueger was an architectural firm that formed when James Rupert Miller named Timothy L. Pflueger partner. Pflueger, at the time a rising star of San Francisco's architect community, had begun his architectural career with architecture firm, Miller and Colmesnil sometime in 1907, under the tutelage of James Rupert Miller. Together, Miller and Pflueger designed a number of significant buildings in San Francisco, including the Pacific Telephone & Telegraph Company Building which was the city's tallest skyscraper for four decades.
The architectural works featured artistic highlights (such as murals, bas-relief, sculpture) by challenging, new artists and craftsmen such as Ralph Stackpole, Robert Boardman Howard, Charles Stafford Duncan, Dorothy Wright Liebes, Diego Rivera. Rather than breaking new ground with designs, they captured the spirit of the times and refined it, adding a distinct personal flair.
Miller retired in 1937; Pflueger reformed the business as Timothy L. Pflueger and Associates.
