Description
The Fullerton Rotary Club Collection consists of a wide variety of Rotary Club ephemera, including awards, letters, periodicals / books, and meeting minutes.
Background
The Rotary Club organization was founded by attorney Paul P. Harris in Chicago, Illinois on February 23, 1905. It has since grown substantially into an international service organization. Their mission is to provide humanitarian services and promote peace around the world. It is non-religious and non-governmental. The philosophy of the Rotary Club is as follows: (1) The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service. (2) High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society. (3) the application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business, and community life. (4) The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.
