Color photograph showing a group of members of the Masonic Ladies Oriental Shrine of North America. The women are arranged in five rows with many rows of folding chairs and stairs behind them. All of the women wear peach-colored gowns and white fezzes with red tassels. Several of the women wear corsages. Their fezzes name the LOSNA Court they belong to.


The Ladies Oriental Shrine of North America (LOSNA) was founded in 1903. It is not an auxiliary of the Shrine, but its own distinct organization. The Grand Council was organized in 1914. Members must be related to a Master Mason or Shriner by birth, marriage or adoption.
