Biography/History

Jan Van Dalfsen was student leader (AUS), education activist and resident. He was the only person ever to be elected to a national student union position on the basis of ideas rather than a political affiliation. As Education Vice-President for the Australian Union of Students he was the spokesperson for the De-schooling Movement and continued his role as an activist around education and race issues at Walker Press. He was also resident at the premises for several years and closely involved in the acquisition of the property in Smith Street.
