David Ben-Gurion Histadrut Membership Register Signed "D. Ben-Gurion" in Hebrew as secretary general of Histadrut. Thirty pages, 4" x 5", December/January 192?. This records the register of a 69-year-old member of the Teachers' Union. Ben-Gurion's signature appears on the first page. Blanks occurring in the first two pages and referring to membership number 4647 are filled in with Hebrew script (age: "69"). Later printed pages are not filled in. On the last two pages are seventy-five notations in Hebrew.

    Under the leadership of Ben-Gurion, Histadrut, the General Federation of Laborers in the Land of Israel, was founded in Haifa in December 1920. The organization's goal was to build a Jewish workers' society in Israel through settlement and involvement. Ben-Gurion served as the secretary general from 1921 through 1935; the Histadrut represented 25,000 workers by 1927. Ben-Gurion represented Histadrut in the World Zionist Organization and the Jewish Agency; he was elected chairman of both organizations in 1935.
