This order was founded in 1904 by John W. Talbot in South Bend, Indiana. Their main purpose was “To assist each other in business, to help each other in obtaining employment, to assist the widows and orphans of our brothers, to give mutual aid to our brothers in any way that they may need, and assemble for mutual pleasure and entertainment.” The Owls did not have any religiousness. Their local lodge was called a “nest” and they have the usual secret ritual, grips, and passwords. Their national headquarters was in Hartford, Connecticut.
