History of the UELAC

A history of UELAC in five chapters, and an introduction.

The UELAC: Dominion Presidents

Presidents are elected at the Annual General Meeting and have in most cases served for two years, although there are several exceptions. The Association became inactive at the outbreak of the Great War in 1914, but had restarted again before 1919, perhaps earlier. A note from the records indicates that "the meetings in Oct. and Nov. 1918 were cancelled due to the Spanish influenza".
