Miller S. Ingram, Jr.
Miller Sloan Ingram, Jr., is a native of Cheraw, South Carolina, and has practiced actively in the United States Bankruptcy Court for 38 years. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Clemson University and his Juris Doctor degree from the University of South Carolina School of Law. He is the son and grandson of former Mayors of his home town.
Miller has practiced law since 1979 in the historic "Ingram Hotel" building on the town green, which also houses his "River Museum" that is open daily to the public free of charge. His underwater exploration and recording of wrecks and artifacts in the Great Pee Dee River resulted in his being named "Archaeologist of the Year" in 1990 by the South Carolina Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology. He served on the University's Archaeological Research Trust Board from 1991 to 1995.
As a graphic artist, he has produced pen and ink drawings of local landmarks which are on display at the office as well as in many local homes and businesses. His interest in local history resulted in appearances on several SCETV specials to discuss historical events in Cheraw.
Miller has been active in the Boy Scouts of America since his youth. He is an Eagle Scout, a veteran Scoutmaster, a certified Search and Rescue SCUBA Diver, and an avid gardener. As the firm motto states, he is "a lawyer you can talk to" about whatever interests you have.
Miller is married to Gail B. Ingram, who taught high school in Cheraw for 34 years before retiring and being elected Chesterfield County Probate Judge. They have two children, Ruth, who is self-employed in Asheville, North Carolina, and Mark, who practices law with the firm.
