Make No Small Plans: M. D. Anderson Cancer Center Endeavors to Make Cancer History
Date:5/8/2009

ennessee who moved to Houston in 1907. With his brother-in-law, Will Clayton, Anderson built Anderson, Clayton & Co. into the world's biggest cotton company. For many years he was one of Houston's leading citizens.

Anderson created the M. D. Anderson Foundation with an initial sum of $300,000 for the "charitable, scientific or educational proposes in Texas... the benefit of mankind and... the advancement of human welfare" to avoid the loss of a large amount of money to estate taxes in the event of his death. In 1939, after Anderson's death, the foundation received an additional $19 million.

When the Texas Legislature appropriated $500,000 to build a cancer hospital and research center in 1941, the M. D. Anderson Foundation offered to match the state funds, provide a temporary home and a permanent building site if the hospital were located in Houston in the Texas Medical Center (another project of the Anderson Foundation). In gratitude, University of Texas regents named the new hospital for Anderson.

Anderson, a bachelor, fell in love only once and never seriously dated again after his marriage proposal was turned down. When she died of cancer, he mourned as if he had lost his wife. He was known for his frugality and thrift, industry and integrity.
