Brief histories of Rotary's First 100 Clubs

Rotary Club of Little Rock 99

Rotary International District 6150

 

Club 99
The Rotary Club of Little Rock is Arkansas' oldest and largest civic organization. Organized on July 13, 1913, the Club was charted as the 99th club of Rotary International on January 1, 1914. Sidney M. Brooks was the founder and first president. He brought the ideas of Rotary from a contact in Los Angeles. Mr. Brooks researched the organization and invited friends August Engel, Corbin M. Duncan, A.M. Carroll and E. Star Thompson to meet with him and discuss the possibility of organizing a club in Little Rock. These five men on the evening of July 6, 1913 selected two men each to invite to join. By the time the club received its charter on January 1, 1914, there were thirty-six members.
