Triplet Freemasons – Lafayette No. 3

  While working on the scanning project of “Oregon Freemason Periodicals” I came across this wonderful item of Masonic History.  This is even more important for my lodge of Union No. 3 in McMinnville Or.   Lafayette No. 3 consolidated with Lafayette No. 3 in the 1990’s.

This is a perfect example of the hidden and forgotten histories that are hidden within our old books, periodicals and records within our lodge and Grand Lodge archives.

Oregon Freemason Magazine – 1944 and 1946 available

The MWB RMR Memorial Library and Museum has added two more years of the Oregon Freemason Magazine.  This is a wealth of historical information.  There are missing volumes for 1944 and 1946 and 1945 is completley missing.  If you have these the museum would love to have copies.  We will come out to you if needed to copy the magizines.

Oregon Masonic News Then and Now MR

With the recent posting of the new project that the MWB Robert M. Richmond Memorial Library and Museum has begun with the scanning of all available Oregon Mason / Oregon Freemason Magazines it has become necessary to share the evolution of this wonderful magazine.

WB Michael Robinson wrote a wonderful paper on this topic a few years ago.  His paper gives all of the history in one source.

Oregon Freemason – Magazine

A new project has began at the MWB Robert M. Richmond Memorial Library and Museum.

Scanning project of the Oregon Freemason Magazine that was very popular from the 1940’s – 1970’s.

The first year available within the library was 1943 and this is now available for view.

These files are fully searchable which is very interesting when looking for a specific lodge, surname or event.
