BACKGROUND NOTE

The Ancient Order of United Workmen, State of Nebraska, was organized to unite white male persons regardless of nationality, political preference or denominational distinction, into a Fraternal Brotherhood. The members of which recognize a belief in the existence of a Supreme Being, the Creator and preserver of the Universe. The order's main objective was to embrace and give equal consideration to all classes of labor, mental and physical; to endeavor to improve the moral, intellectual and social conditions of the members. The organization held lectures, read essays, discussed new inventions and improvements, encouraged research in art, science, and literature. The order also provided funds to aid members during sickness or other disability, and in case of death, to pay a stipulated sum to the beneficiary.
