Thousands of men and women who are recognized leaders in their communities, in industry, education, journalism, the arts and sciences, have given of their time unstintingly – not for personal gain but for the well being of the country. From the start, it has been a grass- roots organization, supported by a thoroughly professional and dedicated staff in Washington. James H. Doolittle
