HISTORICAL SKETCH

Fraternity Fraternitas Estica was founded in Estonia in 1907 as an all-male academic corporation at the University of Tartu by former members of the Estonian Students Society. During the Soviet occupation the fraternity continued its existence in exile and had many local chapters around the world (e.g. Sweden, Germany, USA, Australia, Brazil, Canada). The constitution of the fraternity abroad was validated in 1949.
