I joined Freemasonry in Geelong, Victoria (my home town) in February 1979. It has long been an important part of my life. I have joined many different types of lodges over years, written a number of books and papers on various aspects of the subject, and often been a guest speaker in lodges in Australia and overseas.

Freemasonry is a moral and ethical education society, and a universal brotherhood. It is affectionately known to its members as 'The Craft'. Its primary aim is to teach morality and ethics to its members. Organised Freemasonry was formed in England in 1717 with the creation of the first Grand Lodge, and it subsequently spread worldwide. It is easily the largest non-political/non-religious societal organization in the world.

Freemasonry 'past, present and future' is described in my recent book "Freemasonry for Wives for Others".



 

He has all the virtues I dislike and none of the vices I admire.
