The Walkes Blueprint


What have the thinkers said about long-term future vision of Universality in (English-speaking) Freemasonry?

Upton, Haywood, and Johnson have expressed their views in 1902, 1946, and 1947.   All US Mainstream.

The Walkes Blueprint was presented in 1983, by the foremost PHA thinker at the time, and perhaps for the entire century.
