by Toitū Otago Settlers Museum Shop

Pulpit Radical tells the story of one of New Zealand's most influential social campaigners. Pulpit Radical - The Story of New Zealand Social Campaigner Rutherford Waddell.

Author: Ian Dougherty

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.
