Alfred Armstrong Walton
Born in Hexham,
Alfred A. Walton was one of the lesser-known radical politicians of working-class origin in the mid-Victorian era. He was a prolific author of newspaper contributions on most political and social questions of his time, with a particular interest in land and parliamentary reform. He also was active in important democratic societies, such as the International Working Men's Association (IWMA, First International), the Reform League and several co-operative building schemes.
On this website, you may find information about him which has partly not been published in other places.
