Labour History Book Launch


5:00pm to 6:30pm Wednesday 25 August


The Labour History Society is organising a book launch for Paul Adams’ new book on the legendary Labor leader Percy Brookfield. Brookfield was a militant Broken Hill miner who fought the good fight against BHP in the early years of the twentieth century and later served in the NSW Parliament before his tragic murder in 1921. This is an important book about a largely forgotten figure in Australian labour history. Noel Butlin Archives Centre Menzies Building Fellows Road ANU The book will be launched by Humphrey McQueen. Complimentary wine and nibbles. To assist with catering, please reply if you wish to attend. Thanks Australian Society for the Study of Labour History, Canberra Region Branch
