Administrative History of the Georgia Institute of Technology Masonic Club

The Georgia Tech Masonic Club was formed in 1949 as a campus organization open to faculty, staff, and students who were Master Masons. Masonic Clubs serve as community service groups nationwide. Sigma Alpha Chi, also known as the Square and Compass, is the national fraternity of the brethren. The campus club was affiliated with the National League of Masonic Clubs, but officially became inactive four years later in December 1953.
