Letter from Edward Archibald to Wilder Penfield, May 25, 1928.
Description:
This is a typewritten letter from Edward Archibald to Wilder Penfield. In the letter Archibald states that, having discussed the matter of salaried work while in Germany with Charles F. Martin, he cannot send Dr. Penfield any money for personal expenses. He cites the Rockefeller Grant and the sum of one thousand dollars that McGill University has already given Penfield for personal expenses. However, he does tell Penfield that he should feel free to ask for additional funds to purchase equipment in Europe which could be used in the Neurology and Neurosurgery department which Penfield will establish when he returns from Germany. Archibald then discusses the logistics of Penfield's arrival in Montreal, including laboratory setup, an intern, a budget, and capital. He inquires about a statement that Penfield made about a technique perfected by Otfrid Foerster and instruct Penfield to gather as much information as possible. He then discusses Penfield’s teaching obligations as a faculty member. Finally, Archibald sends his well wishes to the Penfield family and Professor Foerster in Breslau. This letter is from May 25, 1928.
