The Robert A. Woods Masonic Collection

(Gift of Robert A. Woods, 1944)

St. Barnabas Conclave No. 31 (Louisville, KY): Knights of the Red Cross of Constantine (1924?)

The Red Cross of Constantine

This is a printed program from a meeting of the Grand Imperial Council of the Red Cross of Constantine, a sub-order within the Masonic organization. The program includes brief histories of both St. Barnabas and the symbolism of the Cross of Constantine; it is printed on fine linen with a tipped-in photograph of Samuel Hillman, the Grand Sovereign of the the Council at the time of the meeting. This copy was given as a gift to Woods, a past Grand Sovereign of the Council and an honored guest; it is bound in red velvet with his name stamped in gold on the cover.
