'The all-faith chapel at WVU Hospital, Morgantown, is for the use of patients and visitors.  The allegorical figures over the altar are the work of the noted Chicago sculptor, Milton Horn.'
'The noted American sculptor Milton Horn was commissioned in 1954 to create a visual history of the healing arts for the proposed West Virginia University Medical Center. He produced eight panels in high relief, each three by seven feet, depicting important developments and personages in the history of medicine, dentistry, nursing and pharmacy. They are carved in white Georgia marble on each face of four 15-foot pylons at the entrance to the Health Sciences Center. For well over a year, the artist worked under a canvas canopy while his wife read from the Bible. People would come and watch and he would discuss politics, religion, or anything else; all the time, chiseling away and becoming quite a celebrity.'
