Grand United Order of Odd Fellows

Hello All,

Looking for information and/or photos of members of the GUOOF.

This organization was founded (1843) as an "offshoot" of the International Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF) when AA's were not allowed membership into the IOOF.

We're interested in the uniform/regalia worn by their "Drill Team" members as they participated in parades and other functions.

We're trying to identify, in a photograph, the uniform of an ancestor, early 1900's. The uniform appears to be more ceremonial than military and he belonged to both a Masonic and an Odd Fellow organization. We have eliminated the uniform as being post Civil War, Spanish-American or World War I vintage.

Thanks in advance for any help provided.

Art Thomas
