Title Group III: State Commanderies, Series 01: District of Columbia (DC)
Scope & Content The MOLLUS collection dates from 1857 to 2012. The majority of the collection consists of record books, meeting records, scrapbooks, correspondence, financial records, registers, published addresses, membership records, photograph books, photographs of members, and songbooks. 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 "III. State commanderies" dates from 1865 to 1966 and is divided into four series: "III.1. District of Columbia (DC)," "III.2. Illinois," "III.3. Maine," and "III.4. Assorted states."

The series "III.1. District of Columbia (DC)" dates from 1883 to 1942, although it is mostly undated, with significant gaps between 1883 and 1928 and 1928 and 1942, and contains member photograph books, indices, and photographic prints of members, as well as a songbook, roster booklet, published pamphlet, and photocopies of pamphlet title pages. This series is arranged by document type, with member photograph books and member photograph prints arranged numerically by volume.
