Long ago Tacitus remarked that the principal office of history is to prevent virtuous actions from being forgotten.
This volume has been assembled to preserve some of the romance of the founding of Masonry in Colorado – of the organization and development of its Grand Lodge and constituent Lodges during its first century.
The personalities, the happenings, the spirit and the atmosphere of the Lodges of today are the history to be cherished tomorrow! Many brothers have labored diligently through the years to record the happenings in their Lodges. To all of these we express heartfelt appreciation.
Yet the narrative is not complete. Historians have been lacking in some Lodges. In such cases, willing brethren have labored to glean in for mation to provide those Lodges with representation in this book.
