PROCEEDINGS OF THE GRAND LODGE

The primary source for information on the work of the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Massachusetts is the Proceedings of the Grand Lodge. A volume has been issued annually since 1870; the impetus for the availability of these records originally came from Grand Master Gardner, under whose administration the seven original volumes (covering a period between 1733 and 1869) were compiled and produced.

When a page reference to the Proceedings is presented, it is given in the form Year-Page for years from 1870 forward. For references in the first seven volumes, a Roman numeral (I-VII) appears in place of the Year field. The following table lists the years covered by each volume.

Volume I 1733-1792
Volume II 1792-1815
Volume III 1815-1825
Volume IV 1826-1844
Volume V 1845-1855
Volume VI 1856-1864
Volume VII 1865-1869
