Henry Wellcome and the Wellcome Trust

Thy kingdom come

Brian Deer investigates the
Henry Wellcome legacy

In his will documents of 1932, the American-born pharmaceuticals pioneer Henry Wellcome devised an ingenious plan that would give him more power over health and medicine after his death than would be posessed by anyone living. But, following this two-part Sunday Times news investigation by Brian Deer, Wellcome's trustees broke up their founder's empire, releasing billions for biomedical research.

The Sunday Times, February 27 and March 6 1994.
