  3. Rotary Founder Paul Harris In the Beginning . . . • The first Rotary Club was organized in Chicago in 1905, by Paul P. Harris. • He and three friends, Silvester Schiele, a coal dealer, Hiram Shorey, a merchant tailor, and Gustavus Loehr, a mining engineer, met in rotation at each other’s offices - thus the name Rotary.

  4. “Service Above Self” • Rotary was not long to recognize that fellowship alone would not keep a group together — there needed to be a purpose. • The first service project occurred in 1907, construction of Public Toilets in Chicago ­ addressing a real community need. • Rotary became the world’s first “service club”.
