The latest issue of the National Library of Australia News contains an article commemorating the centenary of the birth of the Australian trade union leader Dr Lloyd Ross. Dr Ross was a working-class educator in the 1920s and a trade union campaigner in the 1930s and again in the mid-1950s and 1960s. He was also involved in the political activities of both the Communist Party of Australia and the Australian Labor Party.
The article is written by Dr Stephen Holt, the author of a biography of Dr Ross published by University of Queensland Press.
