The League for Industrial Democracy (LID) was the successor to the Intercollegiate Socialist Society. Founded in 1921 to provide ‘Education for a New Social Order Based on Production for Public Use and Not for Private Profit’ many of its activists were around the Socialist Party. In 1922 ‘Socialist Review’ developed into ‘Labor Age’ and Norman Thomas became director. Some of its leading members would go on to form the Conference for Progressive Labor Action in 1929 led by AJ Muste. The LID produced a number of important pamphlets and studies through their Labor Publication Society and throughout much of the 1930s served as the base for the ‘Militant’ faction of the SP.
