Title

New Zealand Socialist Party Conference, 1910

Description

When the New Zealand Socialist Party held its annual conference in Christchurch in March 1910, Fred Cooke and his wife Ida were among the delegates attending. Fred was one of the three Christchurch delegates to the conference and Ida was attending as the proxy delegate for Rongotea. Fred was well-known as an anti-militarist and socialist: Ida was one of the women active in the Women's International League when it formed in Christchurch in 1916. Ida is sitting third from the left in the front row; Fred is sixth from the left. The other two women present, both from the Christchurch Socialist Party were Mrs L R Wilson (first on the left of the front row) and Mrs D Whyte, fifth from the left. Also present was the well-known anti-militarist P C Webb, the delegate for the Runanga Socialist Party, fifth from the left in the back row.
