The Paul Harris Fellowship was established in 1957 to show appreciation for and to encourage contributions to what was then the Foundation’s only programme, Rotary Foundation Fellowships for Advanced Study, the precursor to Ambassadorial Scholarships.
The first Paul Harris Fellows include 1937-38 RI Director Allison G Brush and longtime RI Treasurer Rufus F Chapin, both for donations made in 1946. Mrs Adan Vargas was the first woman to receive the recognition, for a gift made in 1953. Mrs Harry L Jones was the second and one of only five people recognised for contributions made in 1957.
Early Paul Harris Fellows received a certificate of recognition. In 1969, the Foundation unveiled the first Paul Harris Fellow medallion at the RI Convention in Honolulu, Hawaii, in the US. Japanese metal artist Fiju Tsuda created the piece under the direction of the then past Foundation Trustee Kyozo Yuasa. Today, Paul Harris Fellows receive a certificate and pin. They are also eligible to purchase a Paul Harris Fellow medallion.
Rotarians have a tradition of supporting the Foundation by honouring others. Ida LeTulle Taylor became a Paul Harris Fellow in 1978 when her husband, the then District Governor Vann Taylor, made a donation in her name in honour of their 34th wedding anniversary. The gift also made her the 25,000th Paul Harris Fellow.
