There are three preliminary chapters addressing the Oregon Country, organized Freemasonry in Oregon prior to the Grand Lodge, and the formation of the Grand Lodge.

The appendix is 123 pages, and consists of a portion of the Topical History that was written in 1951 and originally distributed in a mimeographed edition. The topics covered: Grand Lodge Educational Fund; Development of a Uniform Work; Development of the Penal Code; Masonic Service Bureau; Proposed Grand Lodge of the United States; Masonic & Eastern Star Home; Grand Lodge Educational Program; George Washington Masonic National Memorial; Life Membership; Freemasonry & the Public Schools; Freemasonry & the Junior Orders; The Idaho Dispute; and The Masonic Reunion.

John C. Wilkinson (1899-1975) was appointed as the Grand Lodge's inaugural Grand Historian in 1952 (having been informally appointed in 1951), and was affiliated with Research Lodge of Oregon No. 198.
