1Title:  Knights of Equity Records     
 Creator:  Knights of Equity 
 Dates:  1896-1998 
 Abstract:  The Knights of Equity is a Roman Catholic Irish social group first established in Cleveland, Ohio, as the Knights of Equity Supreme Council. It then grew into a national organization. The Cleveland group was active from 1895 to 1905. Three courts were founded in Cleveland, one of which eventually had 5,000 members. After 1905, the group disintegrated in Cleveland, but continued to grow in other cities. In 1954, bylaws first included women in the organization. In 1960, the National Daughters of Erin were officially accepted by the Knights as an auxiliary. The collection consists of copies of the articles of incorporation, constitution and bylaws, ritual and installation ceremony program, an anniversary booklet, and miscellaneous newsletter copies.
