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. (Source:
