Biographical history

The Standing Committee of the Australian National University Council was provided for by section 24 of the Australian National University Act 1946 and was delegated with the authority for much of the routine management of the University. It was appointed in 1951, first meeting on 13 July that year. The Vice-Chancellor originally chaired the meetings but from 1971 the Act was amended and the Pro-Chancellor took on this role. Its membership of 7-9 Council members was largely of University officers. The Act was further amended in 1991, removing reference to the Standing Committee, although it continued to meet less frequently until June 2000.
