El Paso Lodge # 130 A.F. & A.M. circa 1969 temple, designed by Brothers Trost & Trost.

“The Lodges sought to civilize, to teach manners and decorum, to augment the order and harmony of civil society. They taught men to speak in public, to keep records, to pay taxes, to be tolerant, to debate freely, to vote, to moderate their feasting, and to give lifelong devotions to the other citizens of their order.”

1st Row L to R: NA, Jack C. Roberts, Archie J. Thornhill, R Tynes Franklin, Harry W. Mitchell, and Robert B. Redic

2nd Row L to R: C.J.T. Witfield, Howard Moon, NA, Prentiss O’Neal, and John J. Farrell
