Memorial service Friday for Dr. Steven Muller

A memorial service for Steven Muller, president emeritus of the Johns Hopkins University, will be held from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. Friday at the Peabody Institute's Miriam A. Friedberg Concert Hall, entrance at 17 E. Mount Vernon Place. Dr. Muller died Jan. 19 at his Washington home. He was 85.

Dr. Muller oversaw the growth of both the university and the Hopkins medical complex during his 18-year tenure, which began in 1972. He increased the school's annual operating budget from $88 million to $770 million, took the Peabody Conservatory under Hopkins' wing, and reopened the nursing school.
