1888 notice for the Anti-Compulsory Vaccination League
The two notices on this page, illustrate Albert Edwards involvement in the nation wide organization, the Anti-Compulsory Vaccination League. He was the Secretary of the Keighley Branch. The one on the left is for a meeting held on 17th December 1888 for what appears to be their AGM and he spells his family name as Schoon. The one right is associated with getting a member on to the local School Board in a notice from 1890 were the spelling is Scoon. Some of the wording on this document is typical of that used by the organization, "The time has arrived when we should make a firm stand in the interest of our Children, independent of our Political Opinions or Religious Belief". It seems there was wide support for this aim.
