Geoff Miller, longtime editor and one of the original founders of Los Angeles magazine, passed away on Saturday at his Beverly Hills home after a prolonged illness. He was 74.
Miller and David Brown launched the magazine in 1960, which was originally called the Southern California Prompter. A year later, they changed the title to Los Angeles magazine. As The Wrap obit notes, it was a pioneering publication:
Los Angeles was the first “city magazine,” and Miller is credited with helping to create the genre. His publication predated New York magazine by eight years.
