Who was Paul Harris?

“Rotary began with the vision of one man — Paul Harris. The Chicago attorney formed the Rotary Club of Chicago on 23 February 1905, so that professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas, form meaningful, lifelong friendships, and give back to their communities”.

1.2 Million members in over 35,000 clubs around the world now make Rotary what it is today and the world a better place in so many ways.
