Ledger contains records of Wigwam of Wyoming Tribe No. 49. Included are minutes, membership and dues and receipts. Enclosed is a certificate granting George G. Gildersleeve District Deputy Great Sachem for District No. 33.
The Improved Order of Red Men was founded in Baltimore in 1834 as a fraternal, social, insurance and political society in the United States. The first tribe was Logan Tribe No. 1 in Baltimore, MD. However, the I.O.R.M. claims, that it is a lineal descendent of earlier patriotic organizations - the Sons of Liberty, Tammany Societies or Columbian Order, and the Society of Red Men.
