    Charles T. Russell, Commander


    Vintage Freemason Compilation Collinsworth Family Album

    Commander of the Kinght's Of The Maccabees ?? Charles T. Russell sure liked joining funny clubs. To bad JW's didn't get the cool hats!

    It has come to my attention (thanks opinionmill) that the guy in the book is not the same as the guy in the funny hat:

    Might not be the same guy, unfortunately. Charles T. Russell was born May 17, 1853, at Grand Ledge, Eaton county, Michigan. Ol' Taze was born a year earlier in Allegheny, Pennsylvania.

    I stand by the funny hat statement.

    Not our C. T. Russell, wrong county, a place he never lived. But keep looking.

    You are on the right track. That is the correct hat for the Royal Commandry and the correct uniform. The crown and cross on the original Watchtower magazine is used by a couple of the Masonic groups. If you go to a Masonic Lodge which currently host an active chapter of the Royal Commandry you would be able to see lots of those funny hats on the men.

    Photoshop? Look at the shading angle on his face compared to his hand and sachet. Opposite angles.
