WELCOME to the website of HISTORICAL DATABASE OF AUSTRALIAN ELITES, a free source of structured data on elite groups in Australian society from 1788 to 1945. The website is an ongoing project that will include data on Australia’s professional, official and business elites.

At present the website contains data on only one elite group: graduates of Australian universities from 1856 to 1945. Further elite groups will be added from time to time in coming years.
