Peace Now! – posters from the Ron and Carmen Smith Collection

Kia ora

Ron and Carmen Smith were well-known Wellington activists for many years.   In 2012 the J.C.Beaglehole Room received from their family a collection of posters and pamphlets relating mostly to their peace, anti-nuclear and environmental activism.  They had quite a broad international focus but with a strong New Zealand and Pacific thread.

Over the course of the last two weeks, Melissa Bryant has been working with us to list the posters and pamphlets, create a finding aid and develop a display based on a small selection of the posters.

The display is in the cabinets on Levels 2 and 4, and can be viewed until the end of November.
