The Brant surname has contributed two homeopaths, though they do have a town named after them.
Cornelia Chase Brant Homeopath, Gynaecologist at Clemence Lozier’s New York Medical College and Hospital for Women and member of the Committee of Women Physicians of the General Medical Board of the Council of National Defense in World War 1.
In 1914, Dr. Cornelia Chase Brant became the dean. Even at that time, no hospital facilities were open to women for internship except at that Hospital.
