Scope and content

Sub-series includes all of Dr. Penfield's "correspondence-domestic", or personal correspondence, which was taken from his office at the Montreal Neurological Institute. This sub-series includes material which Dr. Penfield had collected before arriving at McGill in 1928. In particular, it includes correspondence between Dr. Penfield and his wife, Helen Kermott Penfield.

The bulk of this material was filed alphabetically within groups of years. However, it also includes selected files of correspondence with individuals who were Dr. Penfield's personal friends.

A prefix "D" has been added to the id numbers for files 21 to 32. This is to indicate that the material in the files was taken from Dr. Penfield's home rather than his office at the Montreal Neurological Institute.
