The History of Rotary International

The world’s first service club, the Rotary Club of Chicago, Illinois, USA, was formed on 23 February 1905 by Paul P. Harris, an attorney who wished to recapture in a professional club the same friendly spirit he had felt in the small towns of his youth.  The name “Rotary” derived from the early practice of rotating meetings among members’ offices.

Rotary’s popularity spread throughout the United States and beyond. By 1921, Rotary clubs had been formed on six continents and the name Rotary International was adopted a year later.

As Rotary grew, its mission expanded beyond serving the professional and social interests of club members.  Rotarians began pooling their resources and contributing their talents to help serve communities in need.  The organization’s dedication to this ideal is best expressed in its principal motto: Service Above Self.

Rotary later also embraced a code of ethics, called “The 4-Way Test”, which has been translated into hundreds of languages.

From the earliest days of the organization, Rotarians were concerned with promoting high ethical standards in their professional lives. One of the world’s most widely printed and quoted statements of business ethics is The Four-Way Test, which was created in 1932 by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor for his company and adopted by Rotary in 1943.

It asks the following four questions of the things we think, say or do:

  • Is it the TRUTH?
  • Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  • Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

Object of Rotary

The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular:

  • The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service
  • 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
  • The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business and community life
  • The advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service
