Historic moments -- The Rotary Club of Chicago reflects on its early history
An early member of the Rotary Club of Chicago and his two girls show off a club banner.
The Rotary Club of Chicago celebrates its 104th anniversary 23 February with a membership of over 200.
In the tradition of founder Paul Harris and early Rotarians Gustavus Loehr, Hiram Shorey, and Silvester Schiele, club members continue to meet weekly, perform community service projects, and host a variety of speakers.
The Chicago club recently enlisted the help of archivist consultants to organize and share its archives online. Anyone can access the collection through the club's Web site, www.rotaryone.org .
