This unfinished manuscript by Vernon W.E. Goodin is a comprehensive history of the Australian Labor Party that never saw publication.

Vernon William Edward Goodin (Aust., 1892-1971) was a schoolteacher and parliamentarian born at Kenthurst, Sydney, NSW. He was educated at Sydney Boys High and received a scholarship for the University of Sydney, where he graduated with a Master of Arts in 1921. Goodin was elected in the seat of Murray, NSW for the ALP in 1925, but was expelled in 1927 as he was opposed to the then Premier, Jack Lang. He stood as an Independent Labor Candidate for Murray in the 1927 election but was defeated. Goodin’s personal papers and family archive are held in the State Library of NSW. Ref: NSW Parliament archived website; SLNSW. A fourth folder containing only a section of the typescript also accompanies this group.
