Description:
This is a typewritten letter from Wilder Penfield to Ross Millar, Director of Medical Services for the federal Department of Pensions and National Health. In the letter Dr. Penfield writes that the Montreal Neurological Institute did not wish to further promote the idea of erecting a temporary expansion of the MNI if the federal Treasury Board did not support the project. Dr. Penfield also discusses the money that institutions like the MNI could save the Canadian Government through curing patients who would otherwise be diagnosed, possibly incorrectly, as having "post-traumatic headaches,” and thus awarded federal pensions. The letter is dated June 9, 1942.
