Catalog Number 1001.04.1
Collection MOLLUS, New York Commandery, Records
Object Name Application, Membership
Title Applications and Applicants
Scope & Content The Applications and Applicants Sub-Series contains both bound and loose membership applications and membership transfers from other Commanderies.

There are four bound sets: 1866 to 1885, 1885 to 1890, 1891 to 1898, and 1899 to 1909. The bound volumes are organized alphabetically; some are indexed. The loose documents were organized alphabetically, and the folder titles were maintained from their original envelope. If possible, related application paperwork is filed with individual applicants' files. Straight pins were removed from the loose applications, but use caution when handling as some may remain.

The "Membership Application Ma-Mi, 1909-1974" folder includes a copy of Douglas MacArthur's application to the Wisconsin Commandery, dated March 8, 1907. A letter, dated January 17, 1963, to the Executive Secretary Miss Ruth Johnston from Recorder-in-Chief J. Truman Swing, is included with the application copy. Handwritten marginalia on the letter reads: "Registered as a member in 'other classes.'"
Year Range from 1866
