History


Paul P. Harris 1869 - 1947
Founder of Rotary International


The world's first service club, the Rotary Club of Chicago, was formed on the 23rd February 1905 by Paul P Harris.  He wished to recapture in a professional club the same friendly spirit he had experienced in the small towns of his youth.  The name 'Rotary' is derived from the early practice of rotating meetings among the offices of the various members.
