Excerpt from Sketch of Capitular Masonry: From Its Introduction Until the Year Eighteen Hundred and Ninety-Nine

At the Annual Convocation of the Grand Royal Arch Chapter of Illinois, held at the City of Chicago on October 27, 1898, the Grand High Priest, M. E. Comp. Eugene L. Stoker, in his annual address, directed the attention of Grand Chapter to the approaching semi-centennial anniversary of its organization and recommended the appointment of a committee for preliminary work in connection therewith. The next ensuing Convocation would be the fiftieth in point of numerical arrangement, but fifty years would not, in fact, have elapsed since the date of organization, wherefore he suggested that the celebration should not be held until the annual Convocation of 1900. The recommendation was referred to the Committee on Accounts, which reported back an indorsement of the recommendation and Grand Chapter concurred.

Nothing, however, was accomplished during the year and at the ensuing annual Convocation, held on October 26, 1899, the Grand High Priest, M. B. Comp. Wm. B. Grimes, renewed the suggestion of his predecessor, and recommended that the first four officers of the incoming administration, together with the Grand Secretary, be appointed a committee to take such steps as to them might seem necessary or expedient to carry out the theretofore expressed wishes of Grand Chapter, which recommendation was also concurred in by Grand Chapter. As a result of the annual election the committee became formed of the following Companions: M. E. Comp. Nathaniel Bowditch, R. Ex. Comps. Geo. W. Warvelle, Chas. H. Patton, Alfred A. Whipple, and Gil. W. Barnard.

The Committee, in pursuance of prior instructions and suggestions and after due deliberation, decided to commemorate this epoch of our history by striking a medal, by a memorial volume, and by a fraternal banquet. In the present work they have brought together a brief summary of the introduction of Capitular Masonry Into the jurisdiction; a sketch of its development and progress, and the salient features of its history during the last fifty years. To this has been added brief biographical sketches of distinguished members of the craft, both living and dead, who, during the semi-centennial period now ending have been actively engaged in the work of Grand Chapter, and, whenever same could be obtained, their portraits have also been shown.
