There were losses along the way, but like his political idol "Fighting Bob" La Follette Sr., Garvey kept moving forward."Ed was a guy who really believed in certain principles," said Garvey's former law partner Glenn Stoddard. "I think his philosophy wasn't about the short term. It was about the longer term. Sometimes you lose but you come back."Garvey died early Wednesday at a Verona nursing home where he had been living for the last two weeks. He was 76. He had been battling Parkinson's disease, which led to his retirement in 2013.The news of Garvey's death was first reported by Dave Zweifel, a longtime Garvey friend and editor emeritus of The Capital Times."I have known Ed Garvey for many years," said state Supreme Court Justice Shirley Abrahamson.

Winchester's Gleason now Grand Master of Masons - Woburn Daily Times

Monday, February 06, 2017

Grand Master,” he offered.Without even knowing it though, he began his path to Grand Master just hours into joining the organization. He said he was asked to become an inside sentinel, which is basically the first step (of many) in reaching the position of Grand Master.In fact, his journey to Grand Master actually began in church when he was approached by a relative of his wife to join the Freemasons. Back then you needed to be invited in. Now, you can ask to join. If you do ask, however, you will be investigated, as the organization seeks only good men.“We’re helping men become the best version of themselves,” Christopher Rooney, Communications and Development Associate Director (or as Gleason called him, “the man with all the facts”) said. “We always welcome people to consider joining.”The Freemasons is sort of like a fraternity, minus the hazing of course. The men all know each other, even if they’ve never actually met. Gleason said he could be walking down the street and see someone wearing a Freemason pin and know that must be a good person.“We’re a society with secrets, not a secret society,” he acknowledged.Besides the money there are other perks to being Grand Master. For instance. Gleason is the only member allowed to wear the three-cornered hat inside the Masonic building (located at 186 Tremont St. in Boston). He also has a large office, big desk and an eight-seat meeting table.The Masonic building itself is a pretty great place to call home. It was originally built in the 1850s, then sold to the government. The Freemasons built another building in 1861, which unfortunately burnt down. Finally, in 1899, they built the current building that still stands on Tremont Street, across from the Boylston subway stop on the Green Line.“It was very overwhelming walking into the building,” Gleason admitted when speaking about the day he was installed as Grand Master.Since the building is neatly 120 years old, there have been some improvements over the decades, such as adding a Grand Master boardroom 10 years ago, moving the library to the second floor and removing a department store that used to exist in the lobby in 1960. Coming soon will be a restaurant that could be set to open this year.It’s not unheard of for a lodge to rent out space to a local business. Gleason said the Winchester lodge, which partnered with the Woburn lodge in the mid-1970s, has rented out its lower level. The lodge is located three doors down from the Graham Funeral Home on Arlington Road in Woburn.There are lodges in 150 communities (11 lodges actually meet within the Masonic building in Boston). Each one stands independent by itself and can do whatever it wants so long as it falls within the parameters of the charter. The Winchester lodge runs a child ID program on Town Day.Inside the Boston lodge are installation rooms that contain four portraits that represent the inner workings of King Solomon’s Temple. They also contain two stones: one rough and one smooth. The rough stone represents what we are, while the smooth stone represents what we want to be.One installation room contains four portraits of men who represent four ideals of Freemasonry. George Washington represents faith: he had faith in country and fraternity; he was also an active mason in Virginia. General Joseph Warren represents hope: he was a Grand Master in the 1770s and later died during the Battle of Bunker Hill; he also reportedly financed Paul Revere’s ride. Marquis de Lafayette represents charity: he was a French nobleman who fought with the US for independence. Benjamin Franklin represents wisdom: he was a past Grand Master in Pennsylvania (after he moved from Massachusetts) who is, of course, known for discovering electricity and being one of the Founding Fathers of America.It can be a lot to take in, especially when you’re the one in charge.
