Dr. James A. Miller, no. 6129
Chairman, Department of Anatomy, 1960 - 1972
Dr. James A. Miller is noted as a medical pioneer by demonstrating that hypothermia protects from death and brain damage during asphyxia and drowning. He collaborated at Tulane with Dr. Faith Stone Miller, his wife, on hypothermia and neonatal tolerance to asphysia, studies which stand as hallmarks in the literature.
In addition, Dr. Miller served as president of the Southern Society of Anatomists and organized the Cooperative Summer Teaching Program for students interested in anatomy, histology and neuroanatomy.
