A brief history of Hiram Lodge, Prague

2. Bro. Leopold Pick

The founding father of Hiram, the first modern lodge in Prague was Bro Leopold Pick.

He was a banker in Vienna, where he had been initiated in 1887 in the lodge Schiller. Being wealthy, he retired early to Prague where he devoted his time and energy to Masonry.

Bro Pick became a member of the circle Amicitia, but felt masonry could only be lived in a regular lodge and nothing else.

He undertook all the necessary steps and achieved permission of the Symbolic Grand Lodge of Hungary to establish Lodge Hiram zu den drei Sternen. A total of 42 Brethren joined as founders. Of these, 28 came from the circle Amicitia and 14 from the circle Harmony.
