The Logic Ritual Association

 

Some time prior to 1881 one of the most distinguished actors of the day, Bro. John Maclean, and his friend Bro. George Buckland, both Past Masters of the Lodge of Asaph, No. 1319, together with Bro. James Percy Fitzgerald, a PM of Earl of Zetland Lodge, No. 1364, and some other friends principally belonging to the theatrical profession, finding that by reason of their engagements they could not attend weeknight sessions for instruction, decided to forgather on Sunday mornings.

 

Their meetings were held, for a time, in Bro. Buckland's private house in Camden Road, and Bro. Maclean acted as Preceptor. These brethren were soon joined by others and shortly it became clear that the hospitality of Bro. Buckland could not be continued. A more commodious venue was therefore secured at the Camden Club in the same neighbourhood in 1881. Thus the Logic Club of Instruction came into being.

 

Numbers of brethren connected with the Legal and Medical (as well as those from the Theatrical) professions soon became actively associated with the Club, being attracted by the cultured instruction of so distinguished an actor and Masonic student as Bro. John Maclean, who by his impressive teaching enabled the beautiful ceremonies of the Craft to be performed with impressive dignity, and with "grammatical, Biblical, and logical correctness". These early traditions and principles have been fostered and maintained by his successors ever since.
