[Delmar D. Darrah]
15 July 1868 - 5 March 1945
Born in Illinois, Dr. Delmar Duane Darrah was author of several books on Freemasonry, he is remembered as the author of The American Passion Play.
An Illinois Wesleyan University professor of elocution, Dr. Darrah developed and coached the men's and women's basketball programs at IWU. His version of Christ's story, first conceived in 1915, premiered in the Bloomington Scottish Rite Temple in 1924. Annual productions, with a cast of 200, continued into the early twenty-first century.
MW Bro. Darrah, in his book titled History And Evolution of Freemasonry, stated that "Masons have believed the things concerning the origin of the institution that they wanted to believe and have gone forth and told them as facts. When links were missing, they have been supplied by drawing upon fertile imaginations." Two other works, The ABC of Freemasonry: A Book for Beginners and The Master's Assistant: A Complete Treatise on Freemasonry continued to be reprinted for many years.
