Historical rotarians
« on: May 10, 2017, 10:40:21 pm »
I'm not sure where to post this. I am involved in organising a walk for some people but I need to know famous historical or present rotarians that have any connection with London. So far I have discovered Sir Nigel Gresley, Winston Churchill/, Lord John Reith, Neville Chamberlain, Harry Lauder and Prince Charles are or have been members. Could anyone offer any help

As an aside, both Sir Nigel Gresley and Sir Winston Churchill have resided at Salisbury Hall near London Colney. It is now the home of the de Havilland Aircraft Museum.

Apparently Gordon Selfridge was one too.

If your walk is in London then you may want to consider including statues and memorials to other famous Rotarians, like JFK and Marconi.
