Long time Orange County resident, Ralph August Herbold, died February 8, 2009 in Ashland, Oregon. He was born in Los Angeles, California on June 24, 1915. He graduated from Compton High School in 1932. From 1932 to 1980 he was employed in the plumbing supply industry with time out for a stint with the Navy in World War II. Retired in 1980, he continued his devotion to Freemasonry, establishing a national reputation as a leader in Masonic education through the auspices of the Southern California Research Lodge. Widowed, he moved to Ashland, Oregon in 1997, to be near his daughter, Janet Dunlap. Notwithstanding his move to Oregon, Ralph maintained his dedication to the affairs of the Southern California Research Lodge.

I remember Ralph very well from Long Beach Scottish Rite and his very active involvement in the Southern California Masonic Research Society where he wrote thier monthly column. He was an excellent Mason.
