Brief History of the Beloit Scottish Rite Club
Founded in 1929, the Beloit Scottish Rite Club is affiliated with the Valley of Madison, Wisconsin, Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite. The Scottish Rite consists of four separate bodies; the lodge of Perfection, the Sovereign Princes of Jerusalem, the Chapter of Rose Croix, and the Consistory. These four bodies meet semi-annually for reunions in Madison and confer the fourth through the thirty-second degrees.
The Beloit Scottish Rite Club originally consisted of the cast members of the Twenty-Ninth degree of the Consistory. The club today consists of all Scottish Rite Masons of the Greater Beloit area, and its members have, since 1929, presented the Twenty-Ninth degree, Knight of St. Andrew for the Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite of Madison.
Those members of the Beloit Scottish Rite Club that have been honored by being elected to the Honorary Thirty-Third Degree for outstanding service to Masonry and their community are: Clinton Karsteadt, George Garrigan, Coleman Littlefield, and Earl Van Lone.
