King Hiram Royal Arch Chapter Mark Book

Title

King Hiram Royal Arch Chapter Mark Book

Description

As part of the Mark Master degree, each initiate selected a personally meaningful emblem that the lodge or chapter secretary then recorded. This book contains members' marks from the King Hiram Royal Arch Chapter in Greenwich Village, Massachusetts. Martha S. Harding, the daughter of chapter member Alpheus Harding (1780-1869), illustrated most of the marks in pencil, ink and watercolor, lending color and polish to the chapter’s records. Martha Harding likely honed her painting skills while a student at New Salem Academy from 1822 to 1829.
