Pulpit Radical - The Story of New Zealand Social Campaigner Rutherford Waddell

Author(s): Ian Dougherty

Biography

Pulpit Radical tells the story of one of New Zealand's most influential social campaigners. From his base as a Presbyterian minister in Dunedin, Rutherford Waddell immersed himself in all manner of causes, most notable in campaigning against the miserable plight of women in the clothing industry, which led to major changes to industrial legislation. Although Waddell's views on subjects such as eugenics and prohibition find little contemporary favour, his campaigning on issues such as poverty and inequality remains relevant today.
