Improved Order of Red Men

Post  HoardCopperByTheTon on Tue Dec 22, 2009 5:19 am

The fraternal organization of The Improved Order of Red Men has put out a lot of very interesting badges, pins, and other items related to their get togethers. They were very active in the early 1900's. The organization is supposed to trace its roots back to the Sons of Liberty who were involved in the Boston Tea Party. An original membership application I have from the early 1900's states that you must be a "white male" to join. I have items from several tribes in my collection. Does anyone else collect these?

Can't say I've ever heard of it. Its seems like the early 1900s was definitely the hay-day of male fraternities like the Knights of Pythias, Masons/Shriners, Knights of Columbus, Order of Cincinnatus, etc. Also the KKK, but I don't want to list them alongside the other groups.
