The "Kajastus" Finnish Laborers' Association (Milford, New Hampshire) was founded in 1908 to promote socialism, and the educational and spiritual development of Finnish workers in the area. The Association joined the Finnish Socialist Federation and the American Socialist Party. It drew its members from workers in nearby stone quarries. During the 1920 communist split within the Finnish Socialist Federation, the Association also split; the left-wing faction became the Finnish Workers Federation, and the right-wing remained in the Finnish Federation of the Socialist Party of the United States. In the late 1930s, the "Kajastus" Association joined the Finnish American League for Democracy.
