2015 Chevalier Ramsay Lecture


V W Bro F C Lomax, the Grand Lecturer, writes:

 "On behalf of the Grand Master I should like to thank the winner of the 2015 Chevalier Ramsay Lecture, Brother Mark Gannaway for his excellent paper on the life of Jean Francois Champollion, who appeared in our ritual at the very start of our Order with respect to his work on interpreting the Rosetta Stone.

  Besides Brother Gannaway’s paper, there were many others submitted this year, all of a very high standard, and once again on behalf of the Grand Master, I should like to congratulate you all for your entries which have maintained the high traditions of the Order. Please keep up the good work.

You may incidentally, re-submit them again for consideration. Please don’t think that because you were not successful on this occasion that you will not be considered again. On the contrary your papers are extremely valuable to the Order and we look forward to receiving them or perhaps something new in 2016.

 Please read the guidance on submitting entries which are published on the website under the Grand Lecturer’s column."
