PHA Mason Presides Over GL of Michigan Research Lodge


I've been meaning to post this for several months now, but it got swallowed up in what passes for my filing system. Brother Rob Moore in Detroit sent the following information to me way back in February:
On January 26th, WB Harry Weaver, a member of Redeemer Lodge No. 53, PHA in Detroit became Worshipful Master of the Michigan Lodge of Research and Information No. 1.
This is the first time in Michigan history that a Prince Hall Brother is presiding over a Lodge within the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Michigan. It may be the first such case ever anywhere. In Michigan, as I'm sure is the case in most jurisdictions, membership in Research Lodges is open to any regular Master Mason in good standing in a Lodge within or in amity with the Grand Lodge of Michigan.
Speaking of Research Lodges, Michigan now has a fourth one. Fiat Lux Lodge of Research and Education U.D. in Marquette recently received its dispensation. It joins Michigan Lodge of Research and Information No. 1 in Detroit, Alexandria Lodge of Research and Study No. 2 in Grand Rapids, and Pythagoras Lodge of Research and Information No. 3 in Lansing.
I believe that Michigan is now tied with Georgia at four a piece, and exceeded only by New York and California. Masonic education is alive and well here.

  1. hello,

    Just wondering if you are versed in gematria and if you've written any works on that. Information is scarce in this area of research. I looked at your name (Christopher L. Hodapp) and noticed it sums to 211 in english ordinal, the 47th prime number (47th problem of Euclid, etc). Very interesting topic to say the least.
    :)
