    List of past ACF Presidents

    Wondering if there is a list of past ACF Presidents held anywhere. If not I suggest attempts be made to form one; ideally this should be on the ACF website.

    Surely Wastell has kept all the ACF minutes during his time and that would give you most of them. Kosh was the first and perhaps Hartland the second. I'm struggling to remember, but I have certainly kept all the records from my time on the ACF.

    what do you mean third? How long does the ACF go back to have Judge John as only the third? Did they each last about 30 years?

    There was no position of ACF President until the 1970s and Kosh was the first. Though established in 1922, the ACF had only a Secretary as an Executive officer for many years. It was originally established mainly, perhaps only, to organise Australian Championships.
