    Mr Alexander Miller, 19 School Road, Dundee, died on Wednesday at Ninewells Hospital, Dundee. He was 81.
    A native of Dundee, Mr Miller was educated at Blackness School, Dundee, before embarking on a course of studies leading to his qualification as a chiropodist.
    As there was no training in chiropody at that time, he studied the necessary medical subjects at Dundee School of Medicine during the 1920's gaining practical experience from colleagues in London.
    Mr Miller had a private practice in Perth Road, Dundee, for many years and retired in 1967.
    During the First World War he served as an orderly in the RAMC with the Black Watch and was taken prisoner in Germany.
    During the Second World War he was in charge of the ARP post at Hawkhill School, Dundee.
    Mr Miller was the Session Clerk at Tay Square Church until it closed, and was an elder of St Paul's.
    For many years he was chairman of the Dundee Boys and Girls Religious Association, and was involved in missionary work throughout the world.
    He is survived by his five daughters and his wife.12
