Visualizing Mooseheart the school that trains for life and Moosehaven truly a home for the twilight of life
1 Visualizing Mooseheart the school that trains for life and Moosehaven truly a home for the twilight of life
Loyal Order of the Moose Wraps. Stapled. Very Good Minus 
N.d., circa 1928. 8vo. 21.5 by 19 cm. Unpaginated, [16] pp., plus wrap covers. Visually alluring brochure published by the Loyal Order of the Moose, promoting two of its charitable endeavors -- Mooseheart, a school and orphanage for the children of deceased members, located outside Chicago; and Moosehaven, a retirement community for members located outside of Jacksonville, Florida. The pairing of the two facilities in a single brochure has a certain oddness, but they do represent the two most substantial eleemosynary efforts by the fraternal order. Mooseheart, the larger of the two, was founded in 1913 and was soon covering over 1,000 acres, with dormitories, school buildings, a dairy, a printing and publishing building and other factory structures. The intent was to impart a profession as well as a more general education to its students, who ranged in age from infant to young adult. At its peak, there were 1,300 children residing in the community. Moosehaven was opened in 1922. Both facilities are still in operation, with Mooseheart housing about 500 youth, and Moosehaven, about 400 elderly. The Loyal Order of the Moose was founded in 1888 and has close to a million members today in its 2,400 lodges. Its women's branch has an additional 400,000 members. The brochure is scarce, with a single copy located on OCLC First Search, at Northern Illinois University. Condition: soiling on wraps, with a few pencil markings within Trace of paper clip in top of many pages.
