Masonic Rite #201 - Promotion from on High


Thaddeus T. Gorman, already showing off the key to the city of Pittsburgh (few people realize it was gated as late as 1962) and a top coat made especially for him by the National Embalming and Crematoria Research Organization, both of which he received in 1874 for outstanding funerary and security services.

A known compatriot of Emperor Joshua Norton I of America, General Custer, Harry Houdini and Dr Joseph Bell.

Gorman was not present in London in 1888, nor San Francisco in 1906.

He died in 1948 and again in 1952.
