Ferdie, as he is affectionately known by, was President of R.I. in 1942-1943 and followed his close friend Tom Davis. He comes from Lima, Peru which is far away but he is always on hand at the R. 1. Assemblies and Conventions, and was in Chicago May 16th, 1954 at the cornerstone laying.

Ferdie is a capable and a very likeable individual and has made and continues to make a fine contribution to the growth of Rotary in South America.
