The Mansell Bequest
Dr Harry E Mansell FRCP was a Physician and Cardiologist at Lambeth Hospital, and was a Fellow of the Medical Society of London. He died in 1941 from Motor Neurone disease. When his widow, Mrs. Florence Alice Mansell subsequently died, her Will in 1975 included a bequest to the Society “to promote neurological studies”. Originally, The Society organized symposia, the format of which was a meeting on a neurological topic and these were held about every two to three years. The first Mansell Bequest Symposium in 1977 was on ‘Motor Neurone Disease’.
The Medical Society of London
The Medical Society of London, founded in 1773, is the oldest surviving medical society in England. Founded by Dr John Coakley Lettsom, it aimed “to give the practitioners in the healing art frequent opportunities of meeting together, and conferring with each other concerning difficult or uncommon cases which may have occurred; or communicating any new discoveries in medicine which may have been made at home or abroad”.
