Haunted Chambers by: Karen Kidd
FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, THE MOST COMPLETE WORK OF EARLY WOMEN FREEMASONS AND DETAILS ABOUT TEHIR LIVES.
Cornerstone Book Publishers in New Orleans, LA., recently announced the soon-to-be released “Haunted Chambers: the Lives of Early Women Freemasons”. The book’s author, Karen Kidd, is a Co-Mason and member of a Seattle, WA-based Lodge that works under the Honorable Order of American Co-Masonry, American Federation of Human Rights, headquartered in Larkspur, CO. “Haunted Chambers” is Kidd’s first book.
Kidd touches only briefly on what many will find as the real challenge in this book: that these women existed at all. Instead, “Haunted Chambers” provides the best evidence available that these women did exist and as many details about their lives as is still available. The women in Haunted Chambers include an American writer of women’s rights, an early New Brunswick settler, an Irish immigrant girl, a war hero, a countess and the sculptress who created the statue of Abraham Lincoln that stands today in the US Capitol Rotunda.
The book’s title comes from an observation by noted 19th Century Masonic Historian W. Fred Vernon: “I have no doubt other ancient Lodges have their lady members just as ancient buildings have their haunted chambers.”
Though “Haunted Chambers” is Kidd’s first book, she is not a new writer. She started writing when she was a young girl and sold early works of short fiction while she was in college. She earned a degree in Journalism from Marshall University in Huntington, WV, and was a reporter for about eight years at several small southern newspapers. She then changed careers and entered the information technology field, writing occasional articles for technical journals.
She was initiated into Freemasonry in August 2006, into a Seattle, WA-based Lodge that works under the Honorable Order of American Co-Masonry, American Federation of Human Rights. The Honorable Order is based in Larkspur, CO, and was founded in the US in the early 20th Century. Kidd is a member of the Honorable Order’s Lodge of Research, for which she’s written several architectures/research papers and more are in the works.
In 2007. she won the World Award in Internet Lodge No 9659’s Short Paper’s competition. Internet Lodge is a Lodge in Manchester England that works under the United Grand Lodge of England. It’s biannual short papers competition attracts entrants the world over. Kidd was the first Co-Mason and the first woman Freemason to win such an award in a contest sponsored by a Lodge under the UGLE.

Morgan – The Scandal that shook Freemasonry
By Stephen Dafoe With A Foreword By Arturo De Hoyos
Was William Morgan Murdered By Masons?
On September 11, 1826 William Morgan was arrested for petit larceny and taken from his home in Batavia, New York to answer the charge. He never saw his home or family again. What became of Morgan after he was freed from a Canandaigua jail cell in the middle of the night forms the basis of one of the great unsolved mysteries of American history, made all the more mysterious by the circumstances that preceded it. Several months before his arrest, Morgan had begun work on a book on the Freemasons, a group with which he had recently had a falling. The problem for Morgan and his book was that it sought to expose Masonic secrets, something the local members of the fraternity wished to prevent at all costs.
This book is the story of William Morgan, his associates and the book they proposed to publish. It is the story of how a handful of young, impetuous members of the Masonic fraternity took matters into their own hands to prevent its publication and how their plans took a deadly fork in the road, nearly exterminating the very organization they sought to protect. It is also a book written by a member of the Masonic fraternity.
Praise For Morgan
“Stephen Dafoe’s account is unique. It is not dry history. Written in a narrative form, it conveys the elusive balance which historians demand while remaining a ‘damn good read.'”
