Odd Fellows Fezzes


The panoply of Odd Fellows groups have made as much use of the fez as any other group of groups in American fraternal history. Between the IOOF, the Manchester Unity, and the GUOOF (African American Odd Fellows), there are some fezzes to be seen. It is really at the upper degree and appendant body levels that Odd Fellows fezzes go off the charts, however. The Encampment, the Oriental Order of Humility and Perfection, Imperial Order of Muscovites, Lady Muscovites, Household of Ruth, United Order of Splendor and Perfection, Ancient Mystical Order of Samaritans, Ladies of the Orient…there might be more…all are or were fez wearing organizations.
