Our History

The Australian American Association originated in the late 1930's to strengthen and celebrate the burgeoning alliance. After the outbreak of WWII, the Association received the support of the Prime Minister and had a membership base of over 4,000 members.  Backed by Sir Keith Murdoch, the Association expanded across Australia. 

The AAA Canberra Division was founded in 1960, and was fortunate to have Sir John Crawford AC CBE (1910-84) as its inaugural President.
