HISTORY OF ROTARY
In 1933 Paul Harris gave a speech at the 24th annual Rotary International Convention. It was aired on radio around the world. There was no video of this event, so by courtesy of Don Kemplen of the Rotary Club of Modesto East, California USA.here is an animation of Paul giving the speech in a visual context. Thanks to rotaryfirst100.org for the audio portion.
