Andrew Zellers-Frederick
Appointed Executive Director for The Masonic Library and Museum of PA

Andrew A. Zellers- Frederick of Warminster, Pa., was recently appointed to the position of Executive Director of The Masonic Library and Museum of Pennsylvania, located within the Masonic Temple at One North Broad Street in Philadelphia, Pa.

This expanded position came out of a study commissioned by Grand Lodge with Portfolio Associates, Inc., to determine the best way to showcase and protect the Masonic Temple into the future.

"We appreciate the dedicated fraternal service of Bro. Ken McCarty (P.M., Doylestown Lodge No. 245) as Director of the Library and Museum for the past five years and wish him well in his retirement," said R.W. Grand Master Ronald A. Aungst, Sr.

As Executive Director, Zellers-Frederick's responsibilities will include implementing a strategic marketing, public relations and community outreach plan to promote the Masonic Temple as a valued cultural, architectural and historical asset, thereby providing additional opportunities to share its educational resources and facilities. He will manage the staff and daily operations of The Masonic Library and Museum, oversee events and tours and assist in fundraising efforts to secure the long-term preservation of the Masonic Temple and its collections.

Zellers-Frederick brings with him an extensive background of involvement with historical organizations. He most recently served as Executive Director of Historic RittenhouseTown Inc., and has worked for The Franklin Mint, the National Park Service and Eastern National Parks and Monuments Association, Philadelphia.

Zellers-Frederick earned a bachelor's degree in history from Temple University and the Certificate for Historic Preservation from Bucks County Community College. While working toward a master's degree in history from LaSalle University, he also serves as an adjunct professor for the historic preservation program at Bucks County Community College in Newtown, Pa. He has written for various publications, including The American Revolution-An Encyclopedia, 1993; Military History Magazine; and Journal of Historic RittenhouseTown.

In 2003, Zellers-Frederick received the Individual Achievement Award for Historic Site Development from the Pennsylvania Federation of Museums and Historical Organizations.
