Abstract

Over the period between 1894 and 1985, the territory of the administrative entity known as the Australasian Union Conference changed a number of times and the title of the entity also changed a number of times. The Australasian Union Conference as such existed between 1894 and 1949. However, between 1922 and 1949 it was also known as the Australasian Division. After 1949 it continued to be known as the Australasian Division but was also known more commonly as the Australasian Inter-Union Conference. By 1957 the name ‘Australasian Inter Union Conference’ was being phased out and the term Australasian Division was used until the entity was renamed as the South Pacific Division in 1985.1 Throughout we are describing the same administrative organization.
