Physician Heal Thyself

Charles Donley Miller (1895-1947)

Memorial to Charles Donley Miller (1895-1947) in Brookside Cemetery, at Watertown Center Loop and Brookside Drive, Watertown, Jefferson County, New York. This unique monument features a caduceus, the staff carried by Hermes in Greek mythology and used to symbolize commerce. It’s also sometimes incorrectly used to represent the medical trade, particularly ironic in this instance because the inscription around the pedestal reads: “homeopathic physician.”
