As an effort to serve others, RGHF offers history training for Rotary leaders.

The fellowship accumulates and preserves the complete history, values, and philosophy of the Rotary movement,

as well as encourages others to do the same at every level of the Rotary movement,

and publishes those histories, values, and philosophies on the internet, as well as other forms of media as expedient.

As of 23 September 2014 there are approximately 410 missing histories.

 

RGHF has posted approximately

60,000 articles and histories since 11 October 2000.

 

Please post all missing histories, free, at RGHF's

 

www.historylibrary.org

 

Click on the links (below right) to find where these histories are preserved on our large website.


We will acknowledge Rotarians who assist us with these histories. RGHF Senior Historian and history co-chair, Basil Lewis is responsible for commissioning new work and searching out and obtaining these missing histories.  You may contact Basil through our comment page.

 

A few of the clubs listed on this page do not continue to meet, but their histories are still of interest. The "First 100 Clubs" have all continued. But many of the early counties do not even exist. Many clubs were closed due to world or regional conflicts.  

We are still interested in their histories and in creating a page for each club listed here and all district histories not found at www.districthistory.org 

 

The links at the top of this page will take you to the sections where these clubs are listed, or will be listed. This is a huge undertaking and reliable assistance, which will then be verified, is needed to complete this volunteer work.
