Summary

The Royal Society of Australia was formed in 1930 and received its title in 1931. The aim was to be a high level scientific body similar to the Royal Society of London, however the Society received opposition for several state royal societies. The Society undertook the functions of a state royal society, changing its name to the Royal Society of Canberra in 1955.
