The History of the University Lodge

The September-October issue of the Scottish Rite Journal has an excellent piece on the history of University Lodges.  Our George Mason University academic lodge also receives a very honorable mention!  I highly recommend this article for anyone who wishes to learn more about how academic lodges differ from their traditional counterparts.
