Woodmen of the World Ritual Book 1903

This is a 122 page book from the Woodmen of the World (WOW), It was published in 1903. The cover of the book has the title “For Consul Commander Only” but the actual title of the book is Ritual. It measures about 4 by 6 inches.

It provides scripts and general information for the various rituals that the members of the Woodmen performed. Of interest are the rituals for funeral and burial services and the one for unveiling a monument. The monuments in question were the grave markers that the Woodmen were noted for providing to members in the early 20th century (Click here for the main page for the Woodmen of the World).

Page 118 of Ritual has a cipher key to allow WOW members to decode the information on a membership card (See a WOW cipher card here).
