Professor Michael Anthony Hamilton Russell (1932–2009) was an innovative and radical thought leader who provoked and inspired many researchers to dedicate their careers to tobacco control research in the United Kingdom. Russell studied medicine at the University of Oxford and then undertook his clinical training at Guy's Hospital in London. Russell began his smoking research a half‐century ago in 1967, while training to be a psychiatrist at the Maudsley Hospital in London, first carrying out a pilot trial on electric aversion therapy and then securing a Medical Research Council project grant, with the help of Griffith Edwards, to conduct a full trial. In July 1969, Russell joined the then Addiction Research Unit, Institute of Psychiatry in London as a research worker, thinking it would only be for a few years, but he remained there (and its successor, the National Addiction Centre) until the end of his career.Russell published his first paper, which was on electric aversion treatment for smoking, in 1970 in the British Medical Journal . He then became a prolific writer, publishing more than 250 manuscripts across the range of tobacco control and nicotine research, until 1998, when he was forced to retire with early Alzheimer's disease.
