Letter from Wilder Penfield to Charles Miller Fisher, August 1, 1946.
Date:
1946-08-01
Description:
This is a typewritten letter from Dr. Wilder Penfield to Dr. Charles Miller Fisher, Acting Registrar of the Montreal Neurological Institute. (See letter from Dr. Fisher to Dr. Penfield dated August 16, 1946.) Dr. Penfield writes that the letter is accompanied by a file concerning payment by the Canadian Red Cross for operating room lights. Dr. Penfield suggests that the bill for the lights should be forwarded to the Red Cross, making reference to an August 31, 1945 letter from Lieutenant Colonel William Leggat, President of the Quebec Provincial Division of the Canadian Red Cross Society. In that letter Lt.Col. Leggat informed Dr. Penfield that the Canadian Red Cross Society’s Board of Management had approved a sum of $1,400.00 for light fixtures, and another $2,300.00 for room furnishings for the Montreal Neurological Institute’s new Military Annex. Dr. Penfield writes that, should there be a balance from the the Red Cross funds for room furnishings, it should be put to “some useful purpose.” Dr. Penfield requests that Dr. Fisher give back the enclosed file once he has had a chance to discuss the situation with Miss Eileen Flanagan, the MNI’s Nursing Supervisor, who was in charge of purchasing the furnishings paid for by the Red Cross. Dr. Penfield concludes the letter by discussing one of the new operating room lights and whether it has been delivered. The letter is dated August 1, 1946.
