James Wheeler Davidson became known as the Marco Polo of Rotary over the course of twenty years of creating new Rotary clubs in new countries around the world. Davidson was a member of the second Peary Expedition in 1893/94, and became a war correspondent in Japan and Taiwan in 1895. He moved to Calgary with his new wife in 1907, where he joined the new Rotary club in 1914, and started his international travels for Rotary by chartering new Rotary clubs in Australia and New Zealand. After starting Rotary clubs in Alberta and Manitoba, in 1927 he set out to introduce Rotary into Asia and the Orient, and helped Rotary to make changes to its rules to suit its new world-wide membership.
