Biographical/Historical Note:  A few Israelites conceived the idea of establishing a subordinate lodge of the I.O.B.B. in Columbus, Georgia. The first meeting was organized by Dr. M.J. Moses as chairman and Mr. L. Margolis as secretary on March 26th, 1866. The chair explained the object of the meeting and read to the group the principal goals and objects of the order of which they intended to be a branch. A membership fee of one dollar was requested from those who signed the petition for charter and Mr. Charles Kaufman was requested to act as treasurer.

Scope and Content:  Researchers studying the Columbus Lodge No. 77 Independent Order B’nai B’rith Records will gain insight into Jewish fraternal life in the late 19th century. All material is arranged in alphabetical order by subject and chronologically within each folder.
