Please join us at the University Club on Tuesday, April 2nd as we hear from Tony Conn and Yogi Reppman about the Peace Pipe Letters.
The Great War, followed by the Great Depression created the perfect storm which led us into World War II.  Between the two wars, 1931 to be exact, Rotary International held its annual convention in Vienna Austria.  William Jewett Fulton, from RC Keokuk Iowa, attended that convention.  What Rotarian Fulton learned in Vienna, and what he witnessed touring Europe after the convention motivated him to reach out to Rotary clubs around the world.  Dialogue between those clubs soon became known as the Peace Pipe Letters.  An amazing study of those letters, Rotarians of that period, and the parallels to today's state of affairs.
