This fonds consists of member registers (1874-1960), meeting registers (1918-1960), minute books (1908-1981), correspondence (1940-2003), financial information (1886-1992), leases (1889-1899), and assorted ephemera relating to Masons in general, and events or persons belonging to Cameron Lodge. These records were created, maintained, and preserved by the Lodge, and remain of particular importance due to losing many records in their earlier years.
There are four series within the fonds:
- Administration (membership ledgers, minute books, and meeting information, and any other information concerning Lodge meetings)
- Financial (cash books, account books, auditors’ reports, invoices, and receipts)
- Miscellaneous (blueprints for the 1957 Lodge building, copies of two original leases, information about an early member of the Lodge, and assorted materials relating to Lodge charity work and meetings)
