Conference Program

Freemasonry on the Frontier…

The Grand Lodge of Massachusetts, Boston: 18 – 20 September 2020

The Conference theme is ‘Freemasonry on the Frontier’, with a focus 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 will be structured to reflect the westward expansion of the frontier from the Atlantic coast in the early eighteenth century, through the Mid West 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 lineup including Bob Cooper, Curator of the Grand Lodge of Scotland, Mike Kearsley, Ric Berman, Walter Hunt, Andreas Onnerfors, and other leading international speakers.

We are currently finalising the program, which will be posted here shortly…
