Richard G. Miller, Ralston, and Lincoln, Nebraska
In an interview, Bill Hoffman describes how this line of partnerships evolved after 1970: Martin Aitken, who had been building since the 1930s, was going to retire until Bill talked him into joining him. Then Burket Graf and Woody Hull were looking for places. Bruce Hazen, who had worked with Bill before on his KFC projects, was also looking for a place. "Eventually the group of us formed Aitken, Hazen, Hoffman & Miller", a firm name under which Bill maintained his office until 2003.
