Many Helped!
Rotarians in Elyria, Ohio, do not wish to make any exaggerated claims regarding early day interest in work for Crippled Children. . .
Edgar Allen was not the only Rotarian who was expressing concern for Crippled Children. . .
The "Call for Help" on behalf of Crippled Children was heard by Rotarians in New York State -- West Virginia -- in Michigan and Kentucky -- in Illinois and Pennsylvania. . .
In those days of beginning these Rotarians were most generous in their assistance in development of an International Society for Crippled Children; these, and Rotarians in many states were instigators and supporters of programs for Crippled Children in their own states. . .
But Elyria Rotarian Edgar Allen -- in six years -- traveled 300,000 miles and visited 400 different cities as he encouraged those with the same ideals and dreams. . .
