Color photograph of seven women. In the center is a woman wearing a lavender dress and holding a bouquet of white flowers. She wears a white fez with red tassel. She is flanked by three women on each side. These other six women wear Dutch girl costumes - striped dark skirt with thin white apron, white blouse, red tunic, wooden shoes and white cap with yellow yarn braids. Two of the women on the right hold a banner. The banner is white with red fringe and red lettering, "Marvia Court / No 27." Below this is an emblem for the Masonic Ladies Oriental Shrine of North America. At the bottom of the banner is a red banner with white lettering, "Albany, NY." A sign in the background of the photo reads, "Tulsa Convention Center."


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.
