Anthony Francis Alles was born in the capital city of Colombo, Sri Lanka into a family of renowned lawyers and judges. As a young boy he attended St. Benedicts College, Colombo where he was very successful, winning numerous prizes and scholarships. One such scholarship sent him at the age of 16 to the UK, where he attended Ampleforth College for Boys in York, North Yorkshire. Based on his keen interest in photography and developing colour film, he pursued a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry at Balliol College, Oxford.
Although Mr. Alles did not build his career on traditional science, many of his inventions are based on his training in chemistry. From polymer science and bicycle manufacturing to hypodermic syringes and tea, his career has spanned the globe. His business acumen has allowed him to make a profitable enterprise out of almost any opportunity that he has put his mind to.
Mr. Alles is a generous benefactor to the poor and together with his wife, Viki Alles, he has helped found the Mother’s Wish Foundation (#G.A.2866) to help rehabilitate women experiencing social and domestic violence or mistreatment in Sri Lanka.
