Lee Albert Miglin (July 12, 1924 – May 4, 1997) was an American real estate developer, business tycoon, and philanthropist. Miglin was one of 7 children born to a Roman Catholic family of Lithuanian descent; his father was a central Illinois coal miner. Miglin began his career selling silverware door-to-door and pancake batter out of the trunk of his car. In 1956, at the age of 31, he began his real estate career, taking a job as a broker with Chicago real estate magnate Arthur Rubloff. Miglin went on to become a successful real estate developer in partnership with J. Paul Beitler. They proposed building a 125-floor skyscraper in Chicago, the Miglin-Beitler Skyneedle; however, the building was never built.
