As part of the funding agreement between the Dictionary of Canadian Biography and the Canadian Museum of History, we invite readers to take part in a short survey.

I’ll take the survey now.

Remind me later.

Don’t show me this message again.

I have already answered the survey.

David WELLS was a pacifist who objected to military service, and was imprisoned for it:

“Wells’s experience demonstrates the hostility towards conscientious objectors, particularly of non-traditional pacifist church backgrounds, that existed during World War I.”

To learn more about the difficulties faced by Wells and other pacifists, please consult the list of biographies.
