Abstract

Wilder Penfield and the Montreal Neurological Institute (MNI) are inextricably linked. It was Penfield's unique idea to create a building with an academic atmosphere wherein basic neuroscience and clinical care of neurological patients would benefit from interaction and mutual support. It is clear that without Penfield that there would be no MNI; however, the role of another Canadian icon, Sir Arthur Currie, in the development of the MNI has heretofore been barely mentioned. The thesis of this paper is that Currie had a critical role in the gestation of the MNI that has generally been ignored.

Keywords: Montreal Neurological Institute; Sir Arthur Currie; Wilder Penfield.
