Overseas Study Tours: John Sinclair made his first overseas study tour in 1969 sponsored by Rotary. In 1977 he made the first of his private overseas study trips to study the voluntary conservation movement in USA, Canada United Kindom with visits to Paris (UNESCO) and Switzerland (IUCN). Because many of the earlier study tours were made before the computer era and the keeping of digital records. many of the reports arising from these trips have either been lost or are not available. However a surprising record still remains as diaries or reports were produced for most trips. The following represents some of the reports from Overseas study programs.
