Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Fredrick George Evans (11 Feb 1881 - 13 Nov 1912) was an Australian industrial worker who rose to prominence for his role and death in the Waihi miners' strike. To date he is one of the only two people to die in an industrial dispute in New Zealand's history. Born in Ballarat, Victoria in 1881 Evans lived in his native Australia until 1909 when he moved to New Zealand with his wife and two children. After three years living in New Zealand Evans found a job as a stationary engine driver at the Waihi goldmine. It was here that his trade union activity was to bring him to public attention.show more
