About this work

Description

Series of internal newsletters or journals produced for company-wide distribution.

The company-wide newsletters and journals existed as follows:
'Foundation News' 1942-1986
'Wellcome Journal' 1987-1991
'Wellcome World' 1992-1995
The publication of a journal exclusively for the Wellcome company ceased upon merger with Glaxo in 1995. This sequence does, however, include copies of Glaxo Wellcome staff newsletters, 'Glaxo Wellcome World', 'Magnet' and the 'Glaxo Wellcome Post' (for Glaxo Wellcome pensioners).

A card index to the 'Foundation News' and 'Wellcome Journal', was created c.1980-89, covering the years 1951-1989. It has been reproduced below (the original is catalogued as WF/M/PB/01/01/43). However, the Index is of selected subjects only. If a possible news item does not appear in the index but the date is known (such as a retirement) a manual check of the publication would be worthwhile.

Arranged alphabetically by subject, giving date of edition and page number for each reference (for the most part). The subjects include products, people working for or associated with the firm, locations in which the firm operated, and general subjects which the company was working on (for example 'immunology'). Once you have found the date of the publication you need, order it using the list which follows.

NOTES ON USING THE INDEX
Indexed term is given in capital letters, in alphabetical order.
Products are filed under trade name not generic names
Wellcome Trustees are all under Wellcome Trust
Reagents are under diagnostics
People (if no individual card may be entered under local companies)
Local companies are under country not company name i.e. Cooper
Zeltia and Gayoso Wellcome - Spain
WIHM under Wellcome Institute
