Description

Ellinor Walker was twenty one years old at the outbreak of the First World War and living in Adelaide's eastern suburbs. In 1916 she entered the Kindergarten Training College to begin her professional training. Miss Walker eloquently describes her feelings and attitudes towards the war - from outbreak to armistice - and how her involvement in the Women's Non-Party Political Association influenced and crystallized her opinions. She describes some of the Association's activities both during and after the war when, in conjunction with her Association membership, she became a passionate supporter of the League of Nations and the movement to maintain world peace.
