Neill Lindsay, Grand Chancellor and Bill Spade, Grand Secretary, both of the Grand Lodge Knights of Pythias Domain of North Carolina donated $1,000 on behalf of the group to Joyner Library’s Manuscripts and Rare Books Department in December 2013. The funds will assist in the processing of the Knights of Pythias Grand Lodge, Domain of North Carolina Records collection which is housed in the ECU Manuscript Collection. The collection dates back to May 2009 and contains records (1873-2010) of the fraternal secret society Knights of Pythias Grand Lodge, Domain of North Carolina. Records include biennial and annual reports of local lodges, the Records of Proceedings for the annual sessions of the Grand Lodge, financial records, constitutions and bylaws, publications and items such as the 1909 Pythian Service Book.
