Peace now! Posters from the J.C.Beaglehole Room’s Ron & Carmen Smith collection

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 and environmental activitism.

Over the course of the last two weeks, Melissa Bryant has been working with the Beaglehole Room 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 at Victoria University of Wellington Kelburn Campus Library and can be viewed until the end of November.
