Upon 50th anniversary of auto titan William Morris's death, columnist suggests his memory would be better honored if he hadn't diluted his philanthropy.
"This summer's 50th anniversary of the death of Britain's motor manufacturer William Morris might have attracted more notice had Morris (Lord Nuffield) bequeathed his wealth to a single philanthropic body. If he had, its clout could match the Wellcome Trust's. Instead, Nuffield's legacy was spread and split. His name lives on, but in separate, sometimes competitive, charities." -- David Walker, the Guardian.com
