MILTENBERGER, George Warner, physician, born in Baltimore, Maryland, 17 March, 1819. He entered the University of Virginia and began medical studies in Baltimore in 1836, and was graduated in 1840. He was then elected demonstrator of anatomy by the faculty of the University of Maryland, which place, he continued to fill until 1852. In 1847 the faculty of the university placed under his charge the surgical wards of the infirmary, and gave him the chair of pathological anatomy. In 1849 he was appointed an attending physician at the Baltimore city and county alms-house. He now turned his attention to general practice, and particularly to obstetrics. In 1852 he succeeded to the chair of materia medica, therapeutics, and pathology, and in 1858 he was elected professor of obstetrics, which post he still (1888) occupies. In 1855 he was chosen dean of the faculty. Dr. Miltenberger has been a large contributor to medical literature.
