    Mount: 20" x 16"

    Twenty-four portraits of members of the Patriot 66 Lodge, belonging to The Grand United Order of Odd Fellows. The portraits are both oval and rectangular in shape and of various sizes. One member is wearing a triangular Patriarchal Jewel.

    The Grand United Order of Odd Fellows was founded in 1843 in Kansas City. It was created to include African-American members, as the majority of Fraternal Orders in America at the time discriminated against black members.

    Condition: Chipping and soiling to the mounting board. Some portraits have a few small defects and some are slightly faded.
