Kenneth Ludmerer is professor of the history of American Medicine. In Proctor’s ‘Should Medical Historians be Working for the Tobacco Industry’ Ludmerer was mentioned as follows: “Historians of medicine last year  were shocked to learn that Kenneth Ludmerer, president of the American Association for the History of Medicine, has been quietly working as an expert witness for the tobacco industry since the late 1980s.” In a deposition relating to his work as an expert witness in US v. Philip Morris Inc. et al, the landmark federal case against the tobacco industry, Ludmerer acknowledged he had earned over half a million dollars through his tobacco related work.
“Q. What is the total amount you have earned from
doing the tobacco litigation work to this date?
A. I would say somewhere between 500 and $550,000.
You mean from the very beginning?
Q. From the very beginning.
In the same deposition he acknowledges that he has not researched the industry’s internal documents. Ludmerer has worked on 15 separate trials over twelve years, always for the defence. Ludmerer has also been active in asbestos litigation.
