Exhibition – Recognising London: The Centenary of London Grand Rank
December 3, 2007 - May 9, 2008
In December 1907, the Duke of Connaught, as Grand Master, announced the creation of London Rank (now known as London Grand Rank) which provided London masons with an honours system, comparable with that already existing in the provinces, which could be used to reward long and meritorious service.
The Library and Museum of Freemasonry’s new exhibition examines the history and development of London Grand Rank and at the role played by individuals such as the journalist Sir Alfred Robbins. The formation of the London Grand Rank Association (LGRA) in 1909 and its subsequent history will also form part of the exhibition.
In 1983, to mark the 75th Anniversary of the LGRA, the Association set up the Heritage and Educational Trust which aims firstly to provide funds for the advancement of Masonic education, knowledge and learning and also to purchase Masonic memorabilia and books so as to preserve them for the Craft for all time. The exhibition will include many of the items purchased by the Trust, some of them on display for the first time.
