Robert Davis by Travis Simpkins
Bro. Davis was raised in Corinthian Lodge 307 in Cherokee, Oklahoma, and is a Past Master of three lodges in that state; he is now the Junior Grand Warden of the Grand Lodge of Oklahoma. He holds an “A” certificate in the Oklahoma ritual work.

In Scottish Rite, Davis recently retired as General Secretary of the Valley of Guthrie after serving in that capacity for 30 years. He is a 33° Mason, and a recipient of the Southern Jurisdiction’s Grand Cross.

In York Rite, Davis is a Past Grand High Priest of Royal Arch Masons, and a Past Grand Commander of the Knights Templar. In the invitational bodies, he serves the Oklahoma Masonic Rosicrucians as its Chief Adept. He also is a Past Sovereign Grand Master of the Allied Masonic Degrees in the United States.

Davis particularly enjoys Masonic history, ritual, and symbolism. Before moving to Guthrie, he served 14 years in the City Management and City Planning professions. His hobbies include Freemasonry, the Western esoteric traditions, gender studies, sociology, and writing and speaking on all these. He recently published a book titled The Mason’s Words, outlining the history and evolution of American Masonic rituals, and is the author of Understanding Manhood in America, focusing on the fraternal quest for the ideals of masculinity.
