SIDNEY B. MC MICHAEL

Governor 27th District, Rotary International, 1925;-26.

Chairman Canadian Advisory Committee 1928-29.

Born 1873 - deceased July 3rd, 1959.

Sid did a good job as Governor and Chairman of the Canadian Advisory Committee but the job he will be remembered in Rotary for was his Chairmanship of the Host at Club Convention Committee in 1924. That was Toronto convention year. Sid also was Chairman in 1942 at Toronto's second Rotary convention but his great contribution was in 1924.

He established the House of Friendship which has been a convention feature ever since and he set up the plan for the Rotary International Convention that was adopted and has been in use ever since with only slight variations, as may be necessary to suit the times and the convention city.

On the opposite page [above] the full committee is shown and if the Toronto Club can find such a body of Rotarians within its membership for the Host Club Committee in 1964, it will be fortunate indeed.

Sid left a fine record in the Rotary Club of Toronto, in the District, and in Rotary International.

J.A.C.
