Present and Past District Deputy Grand Masters

Hamilton Masonic District 'B'

As It Has Progressed Over The Years

* Present District Deputy Grand Master

+ Died while in Office. See accompanying note regarding his replacement.

During the early years of Hamilton District, there was obviously no rotation and some District Deputy Grand Masters served for two years. Today District B continues to hold an election for the office of District Deputy Grand Master, and seldom does a lodge miss a turn to provide one. It is important to note that in the early years the District Secretary was not necessarily from the lodge of the D.D.G.M., and did not always receive Grand Honours the next year. Many of the early reports are unclear as to which lodge the D.D.G.M or District Secretary came from. In some cases an educated guess was made using registration and attendance records. If your lodge has further information, it will be greatly appreciated.

"If you have any further updates regarding this page,

 please contact R.W. Bro. Robert J. Brooks."
