"The meeting of the Rotary Club of New York City, held at the Hotel Astor on August 24th was of unusual significance to the American drama. More than seven hundred guests, among the many America's leading actors, play-wrights, producers, artists, and writers, paid fitting tribute to the 
memory of Edwin Booth, and accepted on behalf of the Rotary Club of America a life-size portrait of Booth, which will be placed in the Shakespeare Gallery at Stratford. At the speakers' table, left to right: Augustus Thomas, play-wright; Robert L. Hatch, president, Rotary Club of New York, and Raymond J. Knoeppel, past president; Robert B. Mantell; Edward Davies past president, Vaudeville Artists Ass'n; Arch Klumph, Past International Rotary President; John J. Murdock, general manager of the Keith Circuit; and Julia Arthur."
