As many of you already know, several of us have been working for a couple of years now to put all the old issues of the Knight Templar magazine as well as an index on the Grand Encampment website so that our readers and researchers can look up individual articles by topic or author. Sir Knights Gary Moore,George Marshall, and Dan Pushee have done most of the work.

So far, we have managed to get all the issues from the 1970s to date on the web with the following exceptions. We are missing the April issue for 1972; the January, February, July, August, and September issues for 1971; and the January, February, March, April, May, August, and September issues for 1970. We have no issues prior to 1970.

This means we have about 150 issues left to find and scan. We have access to a few of the negatives for these older issues, but scanning them is a very expensive process. We have processed the 450 issues we have done so far at no cost to the magazine or Grand Encampment.

In order to minimize the cost of getting the last 150 issues online, I am appealing to any of you who might have some of the missing issues in the attic or in storage somewhere to see if you can find them and donate them to the cause. You could save us as much as $10,000 by doing so, even if we can find the negatives for all the missing issues.

If you have any of these you are willing to donate, please contact me at:


with the list so I can ensure that we don’t have duplicate donations, and I will tell you where to send them. We would really appreciate your assistance with this. Perhaps your Commandery has a library with some of the old issues. By scanning them and posting them on the web, we will be saving them for the generations to come.

If you want to look at the ones we already have online or at the index, go to www.knightstemplar.org and select the purple button labeled “KT magazine” near the top right of the web page. Then scroll down the page until you see the archives and index.
OR CLICK HERE and scroll down to table.
The magazines are available in .PDF format for download or in “ISSUE” format for online reading.

Happy hunting, and I hope to hear from you soon!
