With his unique perspective on Freemasonry and the famous Masons of his age, Bro. Brother’s diary is the most remarkable Masonic memoir since Ashmole. Rescued from obscurity, the journal of the hitherto unknown Kansas City Mason shows us the proceedings of an American lodge from within, albeit through the lens of a sometimes distrait journalist more preoccupied with Amontillado than the All-Seeing Eye.
At times a shrewd observer, his verbatim recording of Masonic life offers a glimpse of the fraternal experience that is seldom, if ever, found in print. In unvarnished fashion, Bro. Brother dutifully records the actual workings of his “sleepy little lodge,” and in the process, he lifts the veil of mystery from this secretive society, encountering, along the way, such luminaries as Mark Twain, Kellar the Great, Buffalo Bill Cody, Teddy Roosevelt and even Sherlock Holmes.
Published serially in the Scottish Rite Journal from 2007-2010, the complete collection (to date) is now available in paperback including all stories previously published plus several new adventures, with original illustrations by Ted Bastien.
