My current research project explores the emergence of the profession of neurosurgery in the first half of the twentieth century. I take an in-depth look at two of these institutes, the Montreal Neurological Institute, which was founded in 1934 with financial help from the Rockefeller Foundation, and the Neurological Institute of New York, which opened its doors in 1909, but did not benefit from substantial Rockefeller Foundation help until much later.
