Rotary's Power for World Peace

 

Listen to Paul Harris as he describes how Rotary really began, in his own words, recorded, in 1945, and now for you to hear with your own ears.  

 

Leland Childs's interview of Paul Harris in Tuskegee, Alabama, 20 December 1945. Harris described the origin, purpose and future of Rotary. (MP3) Part I  14:00  Part II 4:00

 

A transcription of the interview was made available in a small brochure (possibly by RC Tuskegee or then district 164).  The transcript is attached in this PDF.

If a DGE/N/D joins prior to their year, they will have more exposure to Rotary's Global History by their service year.

This will be beneficial to all concerned.
