Custodial History Note:In 1991, the entire Wellcome Collection, including the photographs, was transferred from the National Archives - Pacific Northwest Region (Seattle, Washington) to the National Archives - Alaska Region (Anchorage, Alaska). These records were originally donated in 1961 to the National Archives and Records Service by the Wellcome Trust of London, England which was created by the will of Sir Henry S. Wellcome. The records were originally accumulated in Sir Henry S. Wellcome's Washington, DC office up to the time of its closing in 1936, shortly after Sir Henry's death. They are referred to as the Sir Henry S. Wellcome papers or simply as the Wellcome papers.
