Fraternal Membership Certificates

Description

The Fraternal Membership Certificates collection features certificates from non-Masonic fraternal organizations in the Van Gorden-Williams Library & Archives collection. Like a Masonic certificate, a fraternal membership certificate is a diploma issued by a fraternal organization's governing body, or a subordinate body under its authority, declaring that a person is a member of that organization.
