Who We Are

1919 Photo of MSA’s Origin

Thanks to MW  Frank Little and Mount Pinson Lodge No. 495 of Pinson, Alabama for the photo of the participants at the first meeting of the Masonic Service Association. The meeting was held on November 11-13, 1919 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

The photo was found by a man who was cleaning out a house after his grandfather died. He knew his grandfather was a Mason and gave it to Brother Wayne Wise. Brother Frank Little knew MSA would want a copy.

Now, it is framed and hanging at the MSA office. Do you know who is in the photo?
