Social Credit in Wanganui is today traditionally associated with the name of Mr. R. O. C. Marks, originally a teacher at Wanganui Collegiate School, and still a member of the Dominion Council of the Political League, but its inception in that city is associated with Miss Sylvia Gilford, whom I remember affectionately as a teacher at Waitaki, and with Miss McCarthy, also of Dunedin, who was for years overseas correspondent for the Social Credit Association.
Miss Gifford's brother, Mr. W. Gifford, had much to do with the beginnings of things in Lower Hutt, where he also was a school teacher.
