George Towsey wearing a sash in front of the Grand United Order of Odd Fellows of Hamilton, Ohio, ca. 1908. The parade is a celebration of Peter Ogden Day. Peter Ogden was born in the West Indies and served on the S.S. Patrick Henry as a steward. He was the founder of the Grand United Order of Odd Fellows in America, the segregated Odd Fellows, formed because Blacks were not allowed membership in Odd Fellows.
