Date: Fri, 9 Jul 1999 18:55:06 -0800 From: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: World's Largest Masonic Emblem Brethren, The George Washington Masonic National Memorial recently dedicated what they claim to be the "World's Largest Masonic Emblem". The announcement has been widely published on the WWW and Scottish Rite Bulletins. After reading it I felt compelled to send certain individuals the following e-mail. I was wondering if any of you knew any other Masonic Emblems that may be in contention to that claim. Sincerely and Fraternally, Harry Maslin, WM Santa Monica-Palisades #307, GL of CA F&AM 32=B0, Valley of Los Angeles AASR -------------------------------------------------------- To Whom it May Concern, I had occasion to read the article entitled "World's Largest Masonic Emblem" in both the Los Angeles Scottish Rite Bulletin and the Long Beach Scottish Rite Reporter. I would be willing to assume that this article has been printed in most, if not all, recent Scottish Rite publications. Since you are still seeking donations for this project it becomes my duty to inform you that the emblem is not the "Worlds Largest". In fact it falls far short of the Masonic emblem located at Woodlawn Cemetery here in Santa Monica, California. The Masonic community occupies a portion of the cemetery 325 feet wide and 240 feet deep. On the ground in the center, is the actual Square & Compass emblem, which is 168 feet high and 186 feet wide. As you can see this is over three times larger than the emblem located at the George Washington Masonic National Memorial. The Masonic plot at Woodlawn Cemetery was commenced in 1935 and contains room for 2200 graves . Although architectural landscaping is the basis of the emblem, there are 230 graves that are also incorporated in its design. In 1946 there was a memorial monument designed which is now located within the circle at the top of the compass. An aerial view of the site is quite impressive. I am not writing you this letter to attain bragging rights over who has the largest emblem. My goal is only to set the record straight. It seems there is an obvious unintentional false representation over your claim. Since you are asking for contributions partially based on this, I wouldn't want the facts to come back and haunt you in any way. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at my Lodge or return e-mail. Sincerely and Fraternally, Harry Maslin, WM Santa Monica-Palisades #307, GL of CA F&AM 32=B0, Valley of Los Angeles AASR
