Making a Mason at Sight: The Case of President-Elect Taft
A Surprisingly Popular Print!

All together now...

Those of you who have been reading our posts for the last 5+ months know that we've been focusing on items from the collections of the Van Gorden-Williams Library & Archives and telling some of the interesting stories behind those objects. We're happy to say that this blog is going to transform into an institution-wide National Heritage Museum blog that will expand its focus to cover objects from the museum's collections, as well as exhibitions and programs. The Library & Archives staff will still continue to blog about our collections, but we'll now be in the good company of fellow National Heritage Museum staff members who will be sharing stories and news about the collections, exhibitions, and programs here at the museum.

When is all of this happening? Today! Look for a post later today about an object from the National Heritage Museum’s collection. We hope that the expansion of this blog will be welcomed by our current readers, as well as those folks who stumble across us in their search for stories and information about Freemasonry, fraternalism, and American history.

You can continue to access this blog at or you can access it at the simpler - and be sure to let us know what you think of the new changes you’ll be seeing here!
