The League for Industrial Democracy (or LID) was founded in 1905 by a group of notable socialists including Jack London and Upton Sinclair. Its original name was the Intercollegiate Socialist Society, and its stated purpose was that of "educating Americans about the need to extend democracy to every aspect of our society." Under its former name, the League focused its efforts on the labor movement, socialism, and industrial democracy. In 1921, it assumed its new name and enlarged its scope to society at large.
