Altoona Masonic Temple
600 Jackson Drive
Altoona, PA 16602

The presenter for the day is Bro. William L. Britton of Cumberland Valley Lodge No. 315, Shippensburg. The subject of his presentation is Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol and Its Possible Masonic Relationship.

Future meetings:

Saturday, June 23, 2018 at Carlisle, PA – Visitation of the Lodge of Research by the RWGM
Saturday, December 8, 2018 – Place to be announced.


Information about the Craft in general is shared, and at least two research papers are presented, followed by discussion. Of course, good fellowship is also essential to the success of the Lodge of Research!

The Annual Meeting is held late in the year, at which the election and installation of officers is held. All Master Masons are welcome to attend.


Anyone, by invitation of the Master, may present. Brethren interested in submitting papers for possible presentation at future meetings of the Pennsylvania Lodge of Research, or who have Masonic queries they would like answered, should submit them to the Secretary.

Presenters are currently selected by the Master and Senior Warden. The incoming Master is expected to make a presentation of a research paper at the December meeting at which he is installed. Presenters do not have to be members of the Lodge of Research – they only must be invited to speak by the Master.
