Rev. George Oliver, D.D.
[Rev. George Oliver, D.D.]
November 5, 1782 - March 3, 1867
One of the most distinguished and learned of English freemasons, George Oliver is remembered as a laborious antiquary and author on both masonic and ecclesiastical themes.
While his erroneous theories and fanciful speculations on the early history of Freemasonry must be rejected, his laborious researches and genuine scholarship requires that he be placed as the founder of what may well be called the literary school of Freemasonry.
