Biographical note

From 1923 the Central Fund for the Industrial Welfare of Tuberculous Persons administered factories for the commercial employment of tuberculous ex-servicemen , including one for the manufacture of fancy leather goods in Holborn, and the Spero Firewood Factory at Rotherhithe. In 1948 the Fund changed its name and objectives. It became The Spero Fund for the Welfare of Tuberculous Workers, and provided recuperative holidays for patients and their families. In the early 1950s the Spero Fund appointed the officers of the NAPT to act as Trustees and to take over administration of the Fund.
