21 February 1935 newspaper story on the 30th anniversary of Rotary Life Magazine photo of Harris giving autographs at the 1937 Nice, France convention of Rotary

When PH was in Brazil in April 1936, he was hosted by fellow Rotarian Jose Fernandes in Petropolis, a town close to Rio de Janeiro where he visited the President of Brazil, Getulio Vargas.
Jose Fernandes was by then President Elect of RC Rio de Janeiro. In 1937 PH sent Jose Fernandes his book Peregrinations III with a small message. I've just found this book in the library of the Brazilian Regional Magazine, Brasil Rotário. Enclosed is Paul's message to Jose Fernandes, with his signature. As you can see, it says,
"To my friend
Jose M. Fernandes
Caixa Postal 983  (or maybe 883; Caixa Postal means PO Box)
Rio de Janeiro
With kind regards and best wishes
Sincerely
Paul Harris
Dec 30 - 37"
