In 1928, the Masonic lodge that George Washington had presided over as Worshipful Master gathered anecdote about his connections with Alexandria, Virginia, and commissioned photographs of relics and places that provide unusual insights into his career. Not the least of these artifacts is the old clock from Washington’s bedroom at Mt. Vernon, with the hands stopped by his doctor, Elisha Dick, at the time of his death. Anyone interested in American history will find this short monograph to be of value.
