NZ'S FIRST WORLD WAR CENTENARY 2014–2019

The Archibald Baxter Memorial Trust

This trust intends to honour Archibald Baxter and other conscientious objectors from New Zealand during the First World War centenary.

Archie Baxter about 1948

Archibald Baxter is New Zealand’s best-known conscientious objector, and father of poet James K. Baxter. Archibald steadfastly endured the suffering caused by his decision to reject military service during the First World War. Transported to France and exposed to the horrors of frontline warfare, Archie and his fellow objectors have left New Zealand a legacy of principled resistance to war.
