Title Group II: Pennsylvania Commandery, Series 12: Photographs, Subseries 01: Individual Member Photos 1864-1914
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 "II. Pennsylvania commandery" dates from 1861 to 1977 and is divided into twelve series: "II.1. Meetings," "II.2. Correspondence," "II.3. Financial records," "II.4. Membership," "II.5. Publications," "II.6. United Service Club," "II.7. The Soldier's Home of Philadelphia," "II.8. Gettysburg," "II.9. Scrapbooks," "II.10 In memoriam," "II.11. Miscellaneous," and "II.12. Photographs."

The subseries "II.12.1. Individual photographs" dates from 1864 to 1914, although it is mostly undated, with a significant gap between 1864 and1914, and contains photographs of MOLLUS members within the number range 2707 and 2835, which correspond to Pennsylvania member numbers. It also contains a member photograph book card catalogue. This subseries is arranged numerically by companion number.
