The President today announced that he will nominate Oliver J. Keller, Jr., of Gainesville, Fla., to be a Commissioner of the United States Parole Commission for a 6-year term. He would replace George Reed, retired.

Keller was born April 21, 1923, in Lancaster, Pa. He received a B.A. from Williams College in 1947 and an M.A. in sociology from Northern Illinois University in 1965. He served in the U.S. Navy from 1943 to 1946 and from 1950 to 1951.

From 1951 to 1959, Keller was vice president and sales manager for a Springfield, Ill., radio station. In 1960 and 1961, he was chairman of the Illinois Youth Commission, and from 1961 to 1963, he was a commissioner on that commission, serving primarily as a member of the parole board for juveniles.

From 1963 to 1967, Keller was a special fellow at the University of Chicago, and from 1965 to 1967, he was a research fellow at the university's Center for Studies in Criminal Justice.

Keller was director of the Florida Division of Youth Services from 1967 to 1973, a centralized juvenile delinquency prevention and corrections agency. From 1973 to 1975, he was secretary of the Florida Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services. Since 1975 Keller has been a visiting professor of criminal justice studies at the University of Florida. He is also project director of Project Diversion, a federally funded project which places volunteers on a one-to-one "older friend" basis with juveniles charged with law violations.

Keller is the author of numerous articles and is a member of many professional associations and councils.
