Walter Hunt
(2 Episodes)

Meet Brother Walter H. Hunt, Grand Historian of the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts and a man of many talents. A proud Bay-stater, Brother Hunt has always had a passion for history, which he studied at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine. He also studied German, which came in handy when he spent his junior year abroad in Munich, Germany, where he met his future wife, Lisa. After graduation, he spent a year teaching for the Putney Learning System before marrying Lisa in 1982.

Brother Hunt was introduced to Masonry through a co-worker at Compugraphic and was impressed by the core tenets of the organization. He took his degrees at Norumbega & Brookline Lodge in Newtonville, Massachusetts, in 1988, and has since served as Master of both Norumbega & Brookline Lodge and Mount Hollis Lodge in Holliston, Massachusetts. He is also an honorary member of Mount Holyoke Lodge in South Hadley Falls, Massachusetts.

Brother Hunt is an accomplished author with seven published books and an avid board game player. He and Lisa also spent several years on the Advisory Board for Natick Assembly of the International Order of Rainbow for Girls while their daughter went through the various offices in the Assembly. Additionally, Brother Hunt is the exemplar candidate for the 32° in the Valley of Boston and an active member of the fraternity. You can often find him at the meetings of Norumbega Fraternity Lodge and Mount Hollis Lodge, or in the Samuel Crocker Lawrence Library at the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts, where he serves as the Grand Historian and can give you the history of just about anything in the library or the building as a whole.
