The Country Standard was founded in 1936 as the journal for progressive rural workers.
The journal played a vital role through the years in uniting and informing scattered rural communities of their rights as workers (often through the National Union of Agricultural Workers) (NUAW) and as voters.
Country Standards Editors and writers included great men and women, such as Jack Dunman, Wilf Page, Wogan Phillips, Arthur Jordan, Wilfred Willetts and Joan Maynard MP.
This site is dedicated to honouring and keeping alive their dreams.
