Scope & Content The MOLLUS collection dates from 1857 to 2012.

The collection documents the administration and membership of MOLLUS since its creation, focusing primarily on the Commandery-in-Chief and the Pennsylvania Commandery, but also covering other states, as well as the sister organization Dames of the Loyal Legion of the United States (DOLLUS).

The group "I. Commandery-in-chief" dates from 1865 to 2012 and is divided into ten series: "I.1. Constitutions and bylaws," "I.2. Annual meetings," "I.3. Quadrennial congresses," "I.4. Anniversary meetings," "I.5. Correspondence," "I.6. Financial records," "I.7. Membership," "I.8. Publications," "I.9. Scrapbooks," and "I.10. Miscellaneous."

The series "I.3. Quadrennial congresses," which documents the events and activities of MOLLUS conferences held every four years and attended by only the Commander-in-chief, the Recorder-in-chief, and three representatives from each Commandery, dates from 1869 to 1921 and contains minutes, proceedings, and scrapbooks. This series is arranged chronologically.
