‘California streamin’ ’

Bro. Adam Kendall should be cloned, and his clones deployed and employed at Masonic museums everywhere. Until then, he is sharing his great enthusiasm for the history, symbolism, and material culture of Freemasonry via the web, so those of us who cannot get to San Francisco may benefit yet from the Henry Wilson Coil Library and Museum’s vast collections and the amassed expertise of its caretakers.

From the publicity:

History Comes to You

The Henry Wilson Coil Library and Museum of Freemasonry has just announced the first in a series of online Masonic history webinars. On Tuesday, March 19, from 7 to 8 p.m. PST, the Library and Museum will present “Invoking the Muses: Understanding and Appreciating Masonic Material Culture.”

The webinar will provide a historical overview of the aesthetics of Masonic decorative arts, and their essential role within the research of Freemasonry and fraternalism. Attendees will learn how to create meaningful narratives for their lodges’ histories, as well as tips for displaying Masonic artifacts.

This free online course will be hosted by Adam Kendall, collections manager at the Library and Museum. To register, contact akendall(at) with your name and primary e-mail address.
