In the spring of 1807 he began practice at Middletown, and in the autumn of 1808 settled at Lynn, Massachusetts In 1809 a malignant epidemic called spotted fever prevailed in the Connecticut valley, and in combating it he adopted a new method of treatment, which was the cause of much discussion. His infirm state of health prevented his engaging in the active pursuit of his profession otherwise than in a desultory manner. He was a founder of Yale medical school and of the Connecticut retreat for the insane, and was president of the Connecticut medical society in 1834-'7. Dr. Miner contributed to periodicals "biographical sketches of Connecticut physicians, medical essays, and translations from French medical works.
