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.

17 March 1888. While Paul is at Princeton, Howard Harris dies March 17th, 1888. Paul's grandfather had given him a road map for success in life.He had taught him one thing above all else. That was "Tolerance." "I think I inherited something of grandfather's broad spirit of tolerance.Grandfather was an ambassador of good-will in the eyes of the youngster who sat at his table during his impressionable years;he never spoke evil of any man nor of any man's religion or politics."
