Wakeley, Thomas

A radical London doctor and coroner at the West Middlesex Hospital during the mid 1800"s. He campaigned vigorously against the adulteration of food and beverages that was common practice at the time. Because of his actions, a investigation was set up under the direction of Dr Arthur Hassell of the Royal Free Hospital. This eventually led to the Adulteration of Food and Drugs Bill in 1860. See 'Adulteration of Food and Drugs Bill (1860)'
