The role of masonic history

Thursday, 15 March 2012

The Library & Museum of Freemasonry is putting on a free study day on Wednesday 2 May entitled Lodge, Livelihood and Locality at Glenmore House in Surbiton, Surrey

The study day will bring together researchers in the masonic and non-masonic communities to look at historical sources in Freemasonry and the locality. The day will also introduce sources to enable masonic researchers to put their work in the context of locality and hopefully persuade non-masonic researchers to include Freemasonry and fraternalism in studies of their local area.

Expert speakers will be present and there will also be a hands-on session to help people use and understand original sources. Examples will be drawn from Surrey and nearby areas.

The day is free and will run from mid-morning to mid-afternoon, including lunch. Places must be booked in advance by contacting Len Reilly, Project Manager, Historical Records Survey. By post: Library and Museum of Freemasonry, Freemasons’ Hall, 60 Great Queen Street, London, WC2B 5AZ. By phone: 0207 395 9256. By email:
