I recently signed a contract with Arcadia Press to publish an Images of America series volume on Freemason Lodge buildings in New Jersey. I was hoping some of you on this listserv would know if you had any images of Lodge buildings in your collections.

You can contact me through H-Net or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
