Administrative history

The Association was formed in 1865 by male graduates and met regularly to 1905. It was revised in 1910, apparently to collect donations for the Burwash Memorial Fund. In 1921, the Association was re-formed, and went on to meet regularly until 1971, when it joined with the Alumnae Association to form the Alumni of Victoria College.
