The author discusses the purpose and goals of the Australian Society for the Study of Labour History (ASLH), which was formed in May of 1961. The aim of ASLH is to assist in creating a network of contacts for the exchange of information, provide a central location for the preservation and collection of historical records, and offer a forum for discussion and debate. The study of Australian labor history is described as having immediate practical value for the labor movement. It is argued that the study of the general political history of the labor movement in Australia is far from exhausted.
