NEWS:  New Member Jewel Available For Pre-Order!

"It is the duty of the Lodge of Research to present Freemasonry to our membership and to the world at large so that our labors can have a good effect, and to help defend our Fraternity from the depredations of time, prejudice, and misinformation."

WM Nathan C. Brindle's Allocution to the Lodge, 2010

The Dwight L. Smith Lodge of Research is a special purpose Lodge under Dispensation, created by the Grand Lodge of Indiana, F. & A. M., for the purpose of furthering research and interest in the history, customs, and societal impact of the Masonic Fraternity. Our mandate is to study these areas from a worldwide perspective, but with a particular emphasis on how they have impacted the lives of Masons, their families, and the general public in the State of Indiana.

The Lodge meets three to four times each year, at its home in Indianapolis at Indiana Freemasons' Hall.

The Lodge is also responsible for oversight of the Grand Lodge Speakers' Bureau and its Orator's Pin program.

From time to time, the Lodge publishes Perlustration, a compendium of its proceedings.

We welcome all Indiana Freemasons with an interest in research to join the Lodge and to submit papers for its consideration.
