In 1937 , Bro. Daniel D. Smith was installed as Master. WB “Dan” (as he was known) receives special mention because he was one of the primary contributors to Mission Lodges “Centennial 1863 - 1963” history book. He spent many hours quietly researching the material that would ultimately be used for the 1863 - 1938 period of this book. WB Dan spent a total of seven years exploring the history of Mission Lodge #169 and it is because of his efforts, and others like him, that the current Brethren of Mission Lodge #169 can “see into the past” of our great Lodge.
