Effie Jones interview : [Diamond, 1979]

CALL NUMBER: T3588:0001 SUPPLIED TITLE OF TAPE(S): Effie Jones : The Housewives' League RECORDED: Vancouver (B.C.), 1979-07-31 SUMMARY: TRACK 1: Effie Jones was born in England and spent years of her youth in Wales, where she came into contact with the miners' struggles of the early 20th century. She came to Canada in 1919 and married, settling with her husband in Vancouver. Mr. Jones worked for BC Telephone. The Jones' home was the only one in the neighbourhood with a telephone during the Depression, and became a centre for people looking for work. They also had a vegetable garden and many chickens, as well as steady work, and helped to support many of their less fortunate friends and neighbours. Mrs. Jones began her political work with the CCF as a local executive member. Her experience with the CCF left her disillusioned and she left the CCF for the more active Communist Party. She worked in the Housewives' League, transforming it from a Liberal club into an organisation with branches across Canada. TRACK 2: The League worked on support for the Post Office occupation in 1938 -- the defense of the men arrested in the occupation, fighting evictions, and mobilizing to put people's belongings back into their homes.
