The leaders of Rotary International.

Institutions can´t live without people and without a structure ensuring their organization and operation and their purposes, especially all their leaders who repr...esented them at various times.

So, has special historical interest to know our Dear Fellows who led Rotary International since its constitution, whose study was conducted by the Rotary World History Fellowship (RGHF), and to whom complies to thank all the extraordinary work they had with this research and its presentation and publication.
