"An active Rotarian in the Chicago Club, Mr. Taylor shared how the Test had helped his business. In the early 1940's The 4-Way Test was adopted by Rotary International's board and became a vital part of their Vocational Service Programs. In 1954-1955 Mr. Taylor served as President of Rotary International. This was Rotary's 50th Anniversary year and Mr. Taylor made the cover of Newsweek's February 28th, 1955 issue. He and his wife Gloria traveled all around the world that year. One trip involved over 25,000 miles of airplane travel. They visited 38 countries." Source:- (visit link)
