London's Quatuor Coronati Lodge No. 2076 on September 11th

WBro. S. Brent Morris will preside over his final meeting as Master of London's Quatuor Coronati Lodge No. 2076 on Thursday, September 11, 2008, at Freemasons' Hall, Great Queen Street, London, with the gavel falling at 5.00pm. Brent has a long-standing promise to buy the first pint for any US brethren who make the trip.

I would be there if I could. *sigh*

The paper for the evening will be presented by Very Worshipful Brother Trevor W. McKeown, entitled 'An Historical Outline of Freemasonry on the Internet'. Brother Trevor knows the subject well. If his name is not familiar to you, it should be—he is the driving force behind the incredible website of the Grand Lodge of British Columbia & Yukon. Its plain, gray welcome page is a deceptively simple gateway to the largest collection of Masonic information on the web, and is truly a labor of love by Trevor and his brethren. According to his biography, he is the Grand Lodge webmaster, Masonic Bulletin editor, library and archives curator, chairman of the Library and Archives Board of Trustees, Representative from the Grand Lodge of the District of Columbia, and Grand Historian since 2005. He served as Grand Steward for 2001-2002.

Anyone who has done Masonic research over the Internet has likely grazed over the literally hundreds of articles and images on the GLofBCY website, and we all owe Brother Trevor our deepest gratitude for his dedication that goes too often uncredited.

I can attest to the truth of W:. Bro:. Brent's promise to furnish the first pint to any American visitor to his lodge.

Here's to him, and to his historic year.

Only the first pint?
Cheapskate.

Am I wrong in remembering that Bro. Morris was the first Yank to have presided over QC?

I'm thrilled to see that Bro. Trevor is finally getting this paper published - it seems like he's been working on this since AOL came on floppies. That's something that I'd wish I could see and hear in person - one pint or no.

I'm more interested in the bemused tales that I know Trevor will bring back from Blighty.

Brent gets a bargain in Trevor, as he doesn't drink. At least that I've seen. He has shown an interest in spare sandwiches after our Lodge meetings, though.

Cheapskate? You realize that's a pint of Scotch whisky, don't you? How much do you drink at one sitting in Connecticut?

Trevor's paper will become the fundamental reference to Freemasonry on the Internet. I'm very please that Trevor will be speaking to us next week.

How much have you got?

Please give Bro. Trevor my regards. I've chatted with him a few times during the course of this, and a applaud his tenacity and courage.
