Labor History is a project run by the Chifley Research Centre which seeks to educate and engage the Australian people in the history and stories of the Australia Labor Party.
This project aims also to bring together the largest single resource on the ALP so users, whether they be students, teachers or interested people, can gain an understanding of the ALP as a whole.
This dynamic and interactive project will offer users the ability to trace the history of the Australian Labor Party from its inception in the 1890s to the Hawke period of the 1990s. Users are encouraged to share their own stories and experiences to further enhance the collection and also to stand as a testament to the hundreds of thousands of Australians who have contributed to the democratic development of Australia.
The Chifley Research Centre is proud to offer this project as a keystone of Australian political history.
