MILLER, DE LASKIE, Chicago, 111., was born in Niagara со., N. Y., Mny 29th, i8iS. He is the son of Daniel and H.-linda (| »cob-) Miller. His early life was passed on his father's farm, his elementary education being obtained at the village school during winter time. At eighteen years of age he began to teach school, and having chosen the profession of medicine he at the same time entered upon its study under the guidance of Dr. Thomas G. Catlin, of Brooklyn.

He graduated at Geneva med. coll. in 1842, and commenced practice in Lockport, Ill. Remaining there, however, for a short time only, he removed to Flint, Mich. Here he practiced for several years, and identified himself thoroughly with all questions of public improvement and educational development. From Flint he removed, in 1852, to Chicago.

In 1859 he was called to fill the chair of obstetrics and diseases of women and children in the Rush medical college, a position he has continued to fill ever since.

In 1863 he undertook a journey to Europe for the express purpose of procuring material for illustrating his lectures. He is also connected with St. Luke's hosp. as obstetrician, and is consulting phys. of the women's hosp. of the State of Illinois. He makes a specialty of gynecology and obstetrics. He is a member of the III. Slate med. soc. lie was married, in l840, to Adaline O'Harrow, of New York State, who died in l86l.
