By 1908, Clubs existed in San Francisco, Oaklands, Seattle, Washington, Los Angeles and New York. By 1912, as Paul Harris travelled extensively promoting the Global nature of Rotary, Clubs had formed in the British Isles, Europe, Australia, South America, Africa, and Asia. The title “Rotary International” was adopted. The movement transcended national boundaries, race, religion, and language barriers. By 1925, the movement had grown to 200 Clubs with over 20,000 members, amongst whom were Presidents, Prime Ministers, the composer Sibelius and humanitarian Albert Schweitzer. The 1942 Rotary Conference laid down guidelines adopted for the United Nations Educational, Scientific & Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and by providing 50 delegates, advisers and consultants at the UN Charter Conference in 1945, Rotary International played a significant part in the birth of the United Nations Organization, drawing significant praise from Winston Churchill.
