The Morgan Affair

Brethren all,

I received an interesting email over the weekend from my dear friend Bro.: Eddy Norris in South Africa. Its a review and summary of a new book coming out entitled, Morgan:The Scandal That Shook Freemasonry.

The book provides the latest information on a cold case that nearly destroyed Freemasonry in America. Was William Morgan killed by Masons because he was publishing an expose of the Craft's ritual? Or was he simply deported to Canada in a deal worked out between American and Canadian Freemasons? Was the Masonic Governor of New York somehow involved?

The review of the book may be found here.

As the author of the book and the author of the article your blogger friend freely took from without credit, I'd ask of you to tell him to properly cite the source of the material.

That article was published on and I think a link to the entire article might benefit his readers.
