1Title:  Alexander Miller Papers     
 Creator:  Miller, Alexander 
 Dates:  1938-1975 
 Abstract:  Alexander Miller (1902-1975) was the Chief of Orthopedic Surgery at Mt. Sinai and Suburban Community Hospitals who was also active in the Cleveland, Ohio, Jewish community. Dr. Miller was certified to practice orthopedic surgery and trained as a flight surgeon in 1938. He served in the army medical corps from 1941 to 1946. In 1960 Dr. Miller and his wife, Ellen, became involved in fund raising for the hospital ship Hope. Dr. Miller sailed with the ship to many countries, including Ecuador and Vietnam, where he practiced medicine and trained native physicians. The collection consists of correspondence, service records, certificates, flyers, brochures, newspaper clippings, and a scrapbook concerning the hospital ship Hope. Topics of the correspondence include arrangements to return to the rightful owner a Japanese sword which had been confiscated at the end of World War II, letters from Mrs. Miller and friends while Dr. Miller was abroad on the hospital ship Hope, and letters of condolence to Mrs. Miller upon Dr. Miller's death in 1975.
