Title

Supreme Council list of officers, members, and subordinate bodies, 1862 February 5

Description

A list of Supreme Council, Northern Masonic Jurisdiction, officers, members, and subordinate bodies. Dated February 5, 1862. In this document, the Supreme Council provides the Masonic world with a list of its current officers, members and subordinate bodies in order to “prevent fraud.” On August 24, 1860, Sovereign Grand Commander Raymond abruptly closed the Supreme Council sine die, leading to the Schism of 1860 and the formation of two competing Supreme Councils in the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction, one led by Raymond and the other by Killian Van Rensselaer. This document announces the departure of Sovereign Grand Commander Raymond and Grand Secretary General Simon W. Robinson and the ascension of Sovereign Grand Commander elect William B. Hubbard, who shortly afterwards renounced the honor.
