************************************************

William Dick was born in Muiravonside, Sterlingshire, Scotland. He also lived in Australia, before coming to Fresno at the age of 36 in 1892.

At the age of 60, he served as the twelfth Master of Las Palmas Lodge in 1916.

He was employed at Graffs, Donahoo-Emmons as a department manager. Later he worked at Barrett-Hicks. In 1917, after completing his year as Master of the Lodge, he announced plans to move to San Francisco to join a hardware manufacturing company. He never moved his family, and returned to Fresno shortly thereafter.

Besides his work with Las Palmas Masonic Lodge, William was also active in several Fresno organizations; St. Andrews Society (1899), IOOF (received second degree in 1905), Woodmen of the World, and the Scottish Rite.

At the time of his death, his occupation was that of rancher, living out in the Wolters Colony in Fresno. He was survived by his wife Amy Phillips Dick, four sons (John, Donald and Dr. Phillip Dick of Fresno; Phillip of London England), and one daughter Anne R. Campbell. All of Brother Dick's sons would become members of Las Palmas Lodge, but Donald James Dick was one of the original 4 members of Las Palmas Lodge to become Charter Members of the to be formed Ponderosa Lodge. Donald James Dick was Master of Ponderosa Lodge in 1953 and 1954.
