History Learning Center
The "Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How" of Rotary since 11 October 2000
The history of the world can be measured by the amount of data that has been assembled and the importance of that information upon the lives of those who live on this planet.
A recent study determined that from the beginning of recorded history to 1904 a body of information was gathered; from 1904 to 1994 it doubled; and it is estimated that from 1994 to 2024 that total will double in size again.
Therefore, the time between doubling of information (history) will become shorter and shorter. The more we know the more there will be to know.
It is important to be able to sift through the enormous amounts of data and find historical paths that can guide our lives. The RGHF "History Learning Center" is dedicated to helping advanced and beginning students with the Global History of Rotary. Rotary has been and is a community of leaders who believe that Service should be Above Self.
Mission: “Teaching the lessons of history through our massive website.” Rotary Global History Fellowship has thousands of articles, essays, speeches and other information. Rotary Global History Fellowship also has a volunteer staff of educators, historians, artists and authors to help you find your own path through this website, a path designed to assist you in many ways.
Objective: We have created a “learning program” to assist individuals with Rotary Global History knowledge and information.
1. This information is separated from all other “Rotary Learning” experiences of our visitors.
2. The aim is to increase “ease-of-handling” and to enrich the experience of all our visitors.
3. This opportunity is free, voluntary, and consists solely of studying existing history material, found on websites... New material is placed on the site since learning is a living process.
All this is offered for the enrichment of an individual’s understanding of Rotary’s past and heritage. Hopefully, each visitor through their learning and study can add to Rotary’s blossoming future.
