Still active in Rotary, Lyman con¬tinues to amaze all who know him. Born in Iowa in 1890, Lyman emigrated as a boy with his family to Seattle, and thence made his way to Vancouver in 1910. Since then, he has continued active in the tea and coffee importing business and has made outstanding contributions to a wide range of community endeavors in British Columbia. For this he was honored by being made a Commander of the British Empire (C.B.E.).


Lyman's career in Rotary has been long and distinguished. In 1925-27, he served on the Canadian Advisory Council and was President of the Vancouver Club in 1927-28. In 1932 he acted as District Governor by completing the unfinished term of Morgan Eastman. Appropriately, Lyman was honored by the Vancouver Club in 1973 as a Paul Harris Fellow. Lyman is still a fount of wisdom on Rotary and an encyclopedia of knowledge on its early days in the Pacific Northwest.
