Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Thomas Wakem Caldwell (May 2, 1867 - March 14, 1937) was a farmer and political figure in New Brunswick, Canada. He represented Victoria-Carleton in the Canadian House of Commons from 1919 to 1925 as a United Farmers then Progressive Party Member of Parliament. He was born in Florenceville, New Brunswick, the son of Andrew Cunningham Caldwell and Margaret Wakem, and, after completing his education, became a farmer there. Caldwell was married twice: to Annie Abeldt in 1892 and later to Melissa Haladay. He was president of the United Farmers of New Brunswick and served on the executive board of the Farmer's Co-operative Company of New Brunswick. Caldwell was first elected to the House of Commons in an 1919 by-election held after Frank Broadstreet Carvell was named chairman of the Board of Railway Commissioners. He was defeated when he ran for re-election in 1925. Caldwell went to England as a farm delegate to protest an embargo on Canadian potatoes.show more
