Perspectives on American Freemasonry and Fraternalism Symposium, April 28, 2012, Scottish Rite Masonic Museum & Library, Lexington, Massachusetts. The symposium seeks to present the newest research on American fraternal groups from the past through the present day. By 1900, over 250 fraternal groups existed with six million members. The study of their activities and influence in the United States offers the potential for fresh interpretations of American society and culture. Seven scholars from the U.S., Belgium and Britain will fill the day's program. In addition, Michael Halleran will present a lecture, "Gentlemen of the White Apron: Freemasonry in the American Civil War." Registration is $65.
