National Association of New Zealand, Taranaki Branch

Production date
Formed in 1891, with Massey as Vice President, the National Association was a right wing political party born out of dissatisfaction by Auckland conservatives - a response to Ballance's Liberal Party.
Through the efforts of Mr Kyngdon and other interested parties, the Taranaki Branch was formed in November 1891.
The records include minutes; newspaper articles; letters; telegrams and financial reports. The collection also includes a copy of the 1896 National Association Conference agenda which outlines the association's principles and objectives.
