Ethel T. Wead Mick founded the International Order of Job’s
Daughters in Omaha,
Nebraska, in 1920. The purpose
of the Order is to band together young girls with Masonic
relationship for character building through moral and spiritual
development by teaching a greater reverence for God, loyalty to the
flag and the country for which it stands, and respect for parents
Mick, realizing the importance of early training she received from
her mother, and especially the beautiful lessons in literature and
drama as found in the Book of Job, decided to give her time and
talent to make it possible for all young woman of Masonic
relationship to share the rare privileges that were hers.
After several years of careful study and consideration she
founded the International Order of Job’s Daughters, in honor and
memory of her mother, Elizabeth D. Wead.
Ritual was written from ideas presented by Mrs. Mick and other
capable workers, and taken from the Book of Job with particular
reference to the 15th verse of the 42nd
Chapter: “And in all
the land were no women found so fair as the Daughters of Job; and
their Father gave them inheritance among their brethren.”
Special emphasis is given to the thought that to be
“fair” is to do “good.”
Nebraska, the headquarters for the International Order of Jobs Daughters
includes the business offices of the Order and the Ethel T. Wead
Mick Memorial Room.
