The collection consists of minutes, correspondence, reports and memos of Auckland University Labour Club, Princes Street Branch of the New Zealand Labour Party and the Auckland Regional Council (Labour Party), as well as material relating to Labour youth organisations, such as the Auckland Labour Youth Council and the New Zealand Labour Party Youth Advisory Council.
