Dr. Caroline Miller is a planning professor and historian at Massey University, Palmerston North, and is the author of New Zealand’s first book on planning history; The Unsung Profession.


Caroline Miller graduated from the University of Auckland with a BA, and entered the planning profession in 1980. She worked for the Palmerston North City Council as a planning practitioner, and became associated with Massey University as a teacher in programmes offered by the Property Studies Programme.

In 1995 Miller joined the School of Resource and Environmental Planning. Having obtained a BRP, Miller went on to complete a PhD thesis on the history of the planning profession in New Zealand from 1900-1933.
