Full-color issues of The Rotarian are now viewable and searchable at Google Books [link]. Currently, the issues are from 1959 thru 2008 but more issues will follow. A quick search for "alexandria minnesota" uncovered a photo of Big Ole and a letter to the editor from former Alexandria Rotary Club President and District 5950 Governor Joe Perino.
The collaboration is part of an initiative to make Rotary's historical resources more accessible to Rotarians worldwide.
"Google is doing all of the scanning and indexing to make the material searchable -- and at no cost to Rotary," says Stephanie Giordano, archivist for Rotary International.
More than 72,000 pages will be available once Google finishes scanning and uploading all 1,100 issues. The first issue was published in January 1911, when the magazine was called The National Rotarian.
