Margaret Rosemary Miller was bom in London and was educated at Blackheath High School. Thereafter she trained as a nurse at the London Hospital and achieved State Registration, but her nursing experience fired her with a determination to become a doctor and she became a medical student at The Royal Free Hospital, graduating from the University of London in 1949. In 1952 she was elected a Member of the College and obtained her MD. She held junior hospital appointments at the Royal Free Hospital, at the Postgraduate Medical School and at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge, before being appointed a senior registrar at Selly Oak Hospital, Birmingham. In 1962 she was appointed consultant physician to the Dudley and Stourbridge group of hospitals. She was elected a Fellow of the College in 1973.

Blessed with great personal charm and patience, she was a dedicated and conscientious physician and worked devotedly and tirelessly for her patients and for the hospitals with whom she was associated. Her main leisure interest was walking in the Lake District. She never married and her death at the early age of 54 was a grievous loss to her patients and colleagues, all of whom held her in the highest affection and esteem.
