The Allan Memorial Institute (AMI; sometimes colloquially referred to as The Allan), is located on the slope of Mount Royal by McGill University's campus in what was then the Golden Square Mile in Montreal, Quebec. It houses the Psychiatry Department of the Royal Victoria Hospital, part of the McGill University Health Centre. Although currently a respected psychiatric hospital, the institute is known for its role in the Project MKULTRA by the CIA. The Agency's initiative to develop drug-induced "mind control" techniques were implemented in the institute by its then Director Donald Ewen Cameron from 1957 to 1964. The institute occupies the mansion formerly known as Ravenscrag.
