 Dates:  1952-1980 
 Abstract:  Blue Bell Lodge #1 was the Cleveland, Ohio, area chapter of the Daughters of Scotland. The grand lodge of the Daughters of Scotland was founded in 1899, and the Blue Bell Lodge #1 was established the following year. This mutual aid organization was led by women with a mission to aid needy Scottish immigrants in the Greater Cleveland area. The lodge provided sick and death benefits to members through the collection of dues and fundraising through social and cultural events. The grand lodge of the Daughters of Scotland dissolved in the early 1970s, and the Blue Bell Lodge #1 followed suit in 1975. However, three social groups within the Blue Bell Lodge #1 continued to meet after the dissolution. The collection consists of a constitution, correspondence, lists, minutes, newsletters, newspaper clippings, programs, receipts, and reports.
