In 1937 Paul Harris made a special
visit to Britain which he called A POST CONVENTION TOUR OF THE ISLANDS
OF THE BRITISH SEAS following the ending of the
in Nice. One of the islands was the Isle of Man. This is an
account of that visit.
On July 10, 1937, Paul Harris left
Liverpool on the morning boat to the Isle of Man with Will Nixon of
the Manchester Club. On arrival in Douglas, Isle of Man, Paul Harris
was amused when Nixon rushed off ashore with their luggage, completely
missing "the two middle-aged Rotarians wearing roses in their button
holes" who were waiting by the gang-plank to greet them!
