Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Hon. Gregor McGregor (18 October 1848 - 13 August 1914) was an influential Australian politician and trade union leader of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. Born in Kilmun, Argyll, Scotland, McGregor worked in the Glasgow ship building yards prior to his emigration to the colony of South Australia in 1877. Initially working as a builder's labourer and a gardener, McGregor became involved in the union movement, rising to the position of President and Secretary of the United Builders Labourers' Association and President of the Trades and Labour Council, which inevitably led to his involvement in the formation of the Labor Party, and served as President of the United Labor Party in 1893/94.show more
