The registration of architects began in Victoria in 1922. Unregistered people were prevented from practising as architects in 1939. A register of registered architects appeared in June 1923 in the Victorian Government Gazette and lists of registered architects appeared annually in February in the Victorian Government Gazette from this time; these were either a full register or a supplementary list. See Government Gazettes.
