The Eric Fry Labour History research grant.

The Eric Fry Labour History Research Grant: The Canberra Region Branch of the Australian Society for the Study of Labour History (ASSLH) and the National Institute for Social Sciences and Law (NISSL) at the Australian National University (ANU) invite honours and postgraduate students to apply for a $1,000 grant to do research at the Noel Butlin Archives Centre (NBAC), based at the ANU in Canberra. The NBAC is the largest non-government archives in Australia, and holds an unrivalled collection of trade union and business records, along with the personal papers of many left wing and labour movement activists. The aim of the grant is to assist a promising honours or postgraduate student with an interest in labour history and/or the labour movement generally, to overcome the financial obstacles to doing research in Canberra. The grant honours the contribution of the late Dr Eric Fry to labour history as Senior Lecturer in History at the ANU from 1959 and as Reader from 1967 to 1986. Together with the late Prof Robin Gollan, Dr Fry founded ASSLH in 1961 and was its first Secretary and then President from 1984 to 1986. Applications for the 2010 grant will close on 31 January 2010.
