What they are saying about The White House & The Freemasons

“Chris Ruli has assembled a work of incredible breadth that is filled with

information—devoid of embellishments and hyperbole—to help both academic

 and Masonic researchers more accurately appreciate the long-misunderstood

relationships between American presidents and the fraternity.”

—CHRIS HODAPP, Editor (Emeritus) of the Journal of The Masonic

Society, Associate Director, Masonic Library and Museum of Indiana.


“Through careful scholarship, B. Chris Ruli has shed light on the often

 unrecognized role that the Masonic fraternity has had in the lives of the

 Presidents of the United States and those around them. The White House

 & The Freemasons should be regarded as an impressive contribution to

 our knowledge of American history.”

—SHAWN EYER, Editor,

Philalethes: The Journal of Masonic Research and Letters.


“This book gives solid historical information and also expands on what most

 Freemasons think are the basic facts about the White House .... This is a great

book to give to new Masons, to put in your lodge library, and to present

to your community library.”


—S. BRENT MORRIS, Ph.D., PM Patmos Lodge 70, Ellicott City,

Maryland and Quatuor Coronati Lodge 2076, London, England
