THIS WEEK IN DOWNTOWN ROTARY HISTORY

The October 3, 1939, Rotary News summarized remarks made to the Club by Henry Noll, a native of Germany who had been a Madison newspaperman for 36 years, about getting back to the United States after being in Germany in the summer of 1939 and in Vienna when World War II began. He also noted his personal assessment of the political climate in Germany just prior to the war. The Rotary News caption “Interesting Experience” seems quite the understatement.
