Anti-alien agitation in Richmond

Woodbridge, Steven (2020) Anti-alien agitation in Richmond. Richmond History Journal, 2020(41), pp. 40-47. ISSN (print) 0263-0958


This article explores the life of Mrs. Norah Dacre-Fox (later known as Norah Elam) and her anti-alien campaign during the 1918 General Election in Richmond. Dacre-Fox started her political career as an activist for women's suffrage, then moved to the right, and ended up as a fascist. In 1918, she had stood as an Independent candidate and pursued a single-minded campaign in Richmond, south-west London, focusing on the question of 'aliens' and non-British foreigners in the country. In hindsight, it was a foretaste of some of her later fascist attitudes.
