The Thomas Paine Society Committee
The society came into being as a direct consequence of the controversy in Thetford, Paine's birthplace, in 1963 following the offer of a statue of the town’s most famous citizen.
The Society’s objectives are:
“To promote the recognition of Thomas Paine’s contribution to the cause of freedom, and to spread a knowledge of his work and activities with a view to encouraging the growth of a similar spirit of constructive criticism in every aspect of public life”
