THE OFFICIAL HISTORY OF IONIC LODGE #31

The idea of permanently preserving the Lodge's history began with Worshipful Master William F. Huxtable, Jr. (2003-2004).  It was required by his decree that all Past Masters record their work in the East and contribution to Ionic #31 during their year as summarized within a few paragraphs.

Past Master Edward H. Livermore (1950-1951) was able to start begin this lineage at the start of charter year of Ionic #31 in 1950.  From then on, each Worshipful Master of Ionic Lodge has written a small biography of themselves, and significant happenings within the Lodge.  This collection helps express and preserve the uniqueness and commonality each Worshipful Master shared within their time in the East.
