  • Thomas Noble and Sarah Coleman Miller Monument, Allegheny Cemetery

    Sarah Coleman Miller is marked as “Founder of Womens Hospital of Pittsburgh.” If this is a predecessor of Magee-Womens, it is interesting to note that the institution still cannot afford an apostrophe after all these years.

    The monument itself is unique, a romantic impression of a classical arch. The details are classical, but the arrangement of them is entirely fantastic, like a half-remembered dream of an ancient temple.
