Rotary Anns

 

Rotary Ann was from Philadelphia - and she was from San Francisco. Rotary Ann was named after two wives of Rotarians:

 

22-26 June 1914 and 1,288 Rotarians make the long journey to Houston, TX, USA  Rotarian Henry Brunier of San Francisco and his wife "Ann" boarded a special train for the convention. Since Ann was the only woman on the train for most of the trip the other Rotarians began calling her "Rotary Ann". In Houston the Bruniers met Guy and Ann Gundaker of Philadelphia and soon the name "Rotary Ann"  belonged to Guy's wife as well. The term "Rotary Ann" lasted until the late 1980's. 

 

Gundaker was RIP 1923-24 with his convention in Toronto.

 

"Bru" Brunier of San Francisco, was RIP in 1952-53 and his convention was in Mexico City that year.
