Loren Miller (judge) - Wikipedia
Loren Miller (January 20, 1903 - July 14, 1967) was an American journalist, civil rights activist, attorney and judge.[1] Miller was appointed to the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, by former governor Edmund G. Brown in 1964, serving until 1967. Miller was a specialist in housing discrimination, whose involvement in the early stages of the Civil Rights Movement earned him a reputation as a tenacious fighter for equal housing opportunities for minorities. Miller argued some of the most historic civil rights cases ever heard before the U.S. Supreme Court. He was chief counsel before the court in the 1948 decision that led to the outlawing of racial restrictive covenants, Shelley v. Kraemer.

The last days of Admiral's Row's stately, neglected mansions - Curbed NY
"That is the ultimate tragedy of Admiral’s Row—that those buildings got knocked down for parking. In 2016, we are knocking down 150-year-old buildings for a parking lot," says Simeon Bankoff, the Executive Director of the Historic Districts Council. "It is embarrassing." Although they had been abandoned for over 40 years and left to become overgrown ruins, the officers’ quarters remained an irreplaceable part of Brooklyn’s history until their very end, and it is highly unlikely that the chain grocery store replacing them will become an equally important historic structure over the next century. "

30 Photos Inside the Brooklyn Navy Yard's Abandoned Buildings - Curbed NY
Brooklyn Navy Yard. This time, we get a detailed look inside the former surgeon's residence, which was completed around 1863. Our covert tipster, who visited the property on Wednesday, notes that this is before some of Admiral's Row was built, but thanks to landmark status, the condition of the surgeon's residence is "incredible."
