First Information for New Member Booklet Published


Booklet, "Information for New Members" First Published

In June 1952 15,000 booklets were first published and distributed by the Order of the Arrow (OA). The title of the booklet was Information for New Members. George A. Mozealous of Owasippe Lodge, Chicago, edited the booklet. Mozealous was the 1940 National Chief when it was an adult position.

The eleven page booklet gave new members information about the history of the Order, words to the song of the Order, the legend of the Lenni-Lenape, membership and Honors of the Order, OA Insignia, and place to keep your personal record in the Order.

The booklets continued for 20 years and were discontinued in 1972.
