‘Next year: Freemasonry on the Frontier’


Quatuor Coronati Lodge 2076 will return to the United States next September to host another conference. “Freemasonry on the Frontier” will be hosted at the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts in Boston September 18-20, 2020.

Hilary Anderson Stelling
I don’t know how this is possible, and maybe I’m wrong, but it looks like only one presentation will address Freemasonry in New York! On Saturday the 19th, Hilary Anderson Stelling will deliver “Early New York City Mark Medals.” Looking forward to it. (Although I guess Jeff Croteau’s paper on Cerneau will include New York history too.)

From the publicity:

The Conference, Freemasonry on the Frontier, focuses on key individuals and their lives, and broader themes, including the influence of the Irish and Scottish, Prince Hall Freemasonry, and the social and political impact of Freemasonry locally and nationally.

The Conference has been structured to reflect the westward expansion of the frontier from the Atlantic coast in the early eighteenth century, through the Midwest in the late eighteenth century and nineteenth century, to the Pacific coastal states at the end of the nineteenth century and beginning of the twentieth.

Our intention is to make certain that there is adequate time for attendees to question speakers and raise their own points, and to generate a stimulating discussion and debate across the floor. We have a world class line-up including Bob Cooper, Curator of the Grand Lodge of Scotland; Brent Morris, Editor of Heredom; Mike Kearsley, ANZMRC and Prestonian Lecturer; Ric Berman, the outgoing Master of QC and Prestonian Lecturer; Walter Hunt, Grand Historian of the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts; Andreas Onnerfors, Associate Professor, University of Gothenburg Sweden, the incoming Master of QC; and other leading national and international speakers.
