Re: “Wysocki on Pittsburgh’s five greatest boxers

Please consider my grandfather Henry Miller. He was the featherweight boxing champ for Pittsburgh and boxed from approximately 1915 to 1926. I have a gold medalion he won, Pittsburgh vs Cleveland dated 1917. We also have a tie tack that is a boxing glove with a small diamond insert. My grandmother said she got tired of dusting of all of his trophys so she just threw them over the hill one day. My son is researching him now and has found 40 articles that include him. Henrys name is on the statue at the bottom of Troy Hill mentioned as a soldier from ww1. He got robbed of his lunch money on day and took up boxing. Thanks for reading this.
