This tribute was delivered at the funeral in Sydney of Len Fox (1905-2004) on 9 January, 2004. Len Fox was a foundation member of the Australian Society for the Study of Labour History. His first Labour History contribution appeared in issue 2 (1962) and his last in issue 67 (1994). Two of his many books were reviewed in issue 46 (1984), and his work as the secretary of the Movement Against War and Fascism in the 1930s was dealt with in issues 32 (1977) and 38 (1980). Many more articles remain to be written about his role in labour history, especially his long editorship of the miners’ paper, Common Cause, and his championship of workingclass writing, Aboriginal rights, and friendship with the people of Viet Nam.
