Hello Joe: We have one of those same prints in our collection and we have the artist's name as "Elliot P. Badwell," but have never done any research into his work or career. Unfortunately, we can't comment on value - see Jeff's comment below about our previous post on appraisals, "The Question We Cannot Answer - How Much Is It Worth?" That post gives some information about finding an appraiser.


I have 2 3 foot by 2 foot colored prints of the Masonic Temple in Boston Electric Illumination during the Conclave. I cant figure out the artists name it may be Bodwell but Im not sure. Just wondering if you knew who the artist might be and if they are any significant value.


Thanks for the comment. Please check out our previous post, called The Question We Cannot Answer - How Much Is It Worth? (http://nationalheritagemuseum.typepad.com/library_and_archives/2009/07/the-question-we-cannot-answer.html)

And good luck!

We have a 500 page book, entitled "Photo Souvenir, 26th Triennial Conclave, Boston, 1895" The binding is coming apart, but the pages are in excellent condition. Also, with the book, there is some sheet music entitled "Boston Commandery March", as played at the Triennial Conclaves of Knights Templars at Denver, 1892, and Boston, 1895. - By Thomas M. Carter. The sheet music is enclosed in plastic, and consists of three sheets printe don both sides. I would like to find out what the value of it is and find a buyer.
