DESCRIPTION

Originally named Maison Stearns in honour of the pioneering neurosurgeon whose work unlocked many mysteries of the human brain, the house was built in 1905 for the prominent Montreal industrialist Harold Stearns and later occupied for 40 years by the family of Montreal stockbroker Paul-Émile Ostiguy. In the late 1970s, the house was acquired by a law firm specialized in patents, trademarks and copyright law. It was later enlarged to accommodate some 65 people in offices and became headquarters of the Gamma Institute, a futurist think tank. Most recently, the Jeanne Sauvé Foundation acquired the house in 2002 and was restored and modernized under the supervision of Harry Parnass, architect and Founding President of the Sauvé Scholars Foundation.
