Quarto, hardcover (black, full-color photo illus. boards),  pp. Near-Fine, with lightly rubbed edges. From Preface: Syria Temple is 100 years old. On these pages is the story of those 100 years. The casual reader will find it an impressive and colorfulstory, full of the stuff that makes an organization great. Dedicated, longtime Syria members will not be casual readers, however. The same attraction that drew and welded them to Shrinedom will make this history compelling reading. For this story telescopes the tremendous energies and deep commitments of thousands of persons into one volume of words and pictures. syria, with its nearly 26,000 members, is truly one of the great examples of the Shrine in action...In its original concept, this project was to be merely a history of local Masonry and Syria Temple in the Pittsburgh area. Progressively, it became obvious that Shrinedom should be included on a broad scale, since Syria's character reflects the philosophy of a greater body...Hopefully, as readers progress, they will visualize some of the rich history that has been ours. And somewhere within its pages they will recognize the niche that is theirs in this vast Shrine empire.
