Illustrious Arturo de Hoyos, 33°, Grand Cross, who is the Grand Archivist and Grand Historian of the Supreme Council, 33°, of the A. & A. Scottish Rite, will deliver the 2015 Anson Jones Lecture, sponsored by Texas Lodge of Research, on Saturday, 20 June 2015, in Grapevine, Texas.
The 2015 Anson Jones Lecture will be held in conjunction with the June regular stated meeting of the lodge. Additional information will be posted in the next Occasional Bulletin. (see: http://www.texaslodgeofresearch.org/bulletin.html )
Brother Art de Hoyos is respected the world over as an an authority on the history, rituals, and symbolism of Freemasonry.
He is the author, editor, and translator of many books and articles. His encyclopedic knowledge of Freemasonry, and his multilingual abilities have made his works very popular among Freemasons interested in the history, symbolism and philosophy of the fraternity. He is Deputy Grand Abbot of the Society of Blue Friars (member No. 88 – 2000), an invitational body for Masonic authors. Only six Texas Masons have been given this honor. (see: http://www.societyofbluefriars.org/members.html )
Brother de Hoyos is a Past Master of McAllen Lodge No. 1110, AF&AM of Texas, an Honorary Member of John Blair Lodge No. 187, AF&AM of Virginia, and a full member of Quatuor Coronati (Research) Lodge No. 2076, United Grand Lodge of England.
He holds the 33°, Grand Cross of Honour, in the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, the KYCH in the York Rite, and belongs to many other Masonic organizations, holding national offices and appointments in several.
I hope the members of the Texas Scottish Rite History Committee will find this announcement of interest.
