History of the Order

Mrs. 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 and guardians.

Mrs. 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.

The 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.”

Located in Papillion, 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.
