Biographical / Historical
The League for Industrial Democracy (LID) was founded in 1905 as the Intercollegiate Socialist Society by democratic socialist intellectuals to bring "education for the new social order" to the nation's campuses; name was changed in 1920 to broaden appeal and better reflect aims of social ownership and democratic control of industry. Throughout its history, the LID has called itself a proponent of the labor movement. Prominent members and officers included Norman Thomas, Harry Laidler, and Michael Harrington.
