About Paul Harris Fellow

The Paul Harris Fellow is named for Paul Harris, who founded Rotary with three business associates in Chicago in 1905.  Paul Harris Fellow recognition was established in his honour in 1957 to express appreciation of the humanitarian and educational programmes of the Rotary Foundation.

Those programmes include an array of projects that save and invigorate the lives of people around the world, and enhance international friendship and understanding.

While this award is largely aimed at its own members, provision is also made for Rotary to recognise another person whose life demonstrates a shared purpose with the objectives and mission of the Rotary Foundation to build world understanding and peace.  The award is a Community Paul Harris Fellow
