Arch C. Klumph: Brighten all eternity

Arch C. Klumph

“The Rotary Foundation is not to build monuments of brick and stone. If we work upon marble, it will perish; if we work on brass, time will efface it; if we rear temples they will crumble into dust; but if we work upon immortal minds…we are engraving on those tablets something that will brighten all eternity.”

— Arch C. Klumph, December 1928


Klumph, best known as the father of The Rotary Foundation, was born 6 June 1869 in Conneautville, Pennsylvania, USA. Read more about Klumph, or contribute now to help further the work of the Foundation in honor of the anniversary of his birthday.
