A small article appeared in The Guardian today about UGLE's Internet Lodge No. 9659. Reporter William Shaw was true to his word when he spoke to me last week - he just couldn't resist the "rolled up trouser leg" reference.
In the quote from me that he used, I was actually talking about Levant Preceptory, Indiana's medieval recreation Knights Templar unit, and not the Masonic lodge.
Yes, I know, remarks taken out of context by a reporter? Color me astonished.
Still and all, nice to be quoted in the same piece with John Hamill.
Interestingly, two internationally known special purpose lodges in Britain are currently in the hands of Yanks: WBro. S. Brent Morris is the current Master of Quatuor Coronati Lodge No. 2076, UGLE's premiere lodge of research; and Internet Lodge No. 9659 is currently under the leadership of MWBro. Charles A. Lewis Jr., Past Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of North Carolina. PGM Lewis fought hard in North Carolina in 2003 for recognition of Prince Hall Masonry.
