The rights to what fictional character were donated to a London children’s hospital?
Peter Pan is the creation of Scottish author J. M. Barrie. Peter Pan, as most know, is a young boy who refuses to grow up, is able to fly and lives in a magical island known as Neverland. Shortly after publishing the play, Barrie gifted all the rights to the character to the Great Ormon Street Hospital, a children’s hospital in London. Since then, the hospital has funded itself in part with royalties from the many uses of the character including merchandise, movies, books, and plays. The gift came with one stipulation from Barrie, and that was the amount of money raised from the royalties of Peter Pan never be made public.
