Administrative history

The Inter Varsity Fellowship in Australia formed in 1936 from a network of groups at universities around the country. They had begun to form as a result of Howard Guinness' Australian tours in 1930 and 1933-4. In 1947 the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students was founded, and in 1973 the Australian IVF changed its name to the Australian Fellowship of Evangelical Students.
