Past Masters of Putnam Lodge #46

For much of Putnam Lodge’s history, the term of office of a Worshipful Master was two years (as opposed to the present single year term of office), and this tradition was in use up through the 1940’s. While it was not unusual that a Master served only one year, and some served for three consecutive years, more often than not a Master served for a two year term (or perhaps even multiple, consecutive two year terms).
