From Jose Napoleon Duarte Wikipedia page

I was recently looking for information on a different past member when I came across this (AP) news story regarding Jose Napoleon Duarte. Within the article, it states he was a “founder of the Salvadoran branch of the Active 20-30 Club” Which I am pretty sure was in 1952 (when it was 20-30 International).

He went on to become President of El Salvador from June 1, 1984 to June 1, 1989. What was interesting (to me) was the number of times he had to leave El Salvador, but he kept coming back.

Makes me wonder if we can find more information on his time with Active 20-30. Did he learn about 20-30 while going to college at Notre Dame? Or from other Salvadorians? What was his exact involvement with 20-30?
