Biographical Register

THE BIOGRAPHICAL REGISTER OF THE AUSTRALIAN LABOUR MOVEMENT

For over 11 years John Shields and Andrew Moore have been compiling the Biographical Register of the Australian Labour Movement. You can read about their objectives, progress, and achievements here. This is a significant undertaking that allows us to identify and celebrate the many men and women whose dedication to the labour movement has changed the course of Australian history. Here, we present the names and biographies of those active in Victoria included in the Register. We would like to extend our appreciation to John Shields and Andrew Moore for sharing their research with us. This page is a work in progress, if you would like information on one of the activists listed but whose biography has not yet been uploaded please contact the Melbourne Branch.
