"The Artisans Order of Mutual Protection was founded by Civil war medical examiner Dr. James Bunn, his Supervisor Dr. Matson and Mr. McMurray. Dr. Bunn had also help found the Ancient Order of United Workmen. Preliminary meetings on the idea of a fraternal benefit society that would be more satisfactory in terms of benefits for the working man were first held by this group in 1867. This group met again in 1872 in St. Louis MO. At this meeting Dr. Bunn unveiled the rituals of the order and administered an oath to those in attendance to keep it secret. Another convention was held in Washington, DC in 1873 and Dr. Bunn was given the title of the "Most Excellent Master Artisan". Bunn was authorized to institute assemblies and start to recruit new members into the Order. The charter was signed on May 1st 1873. In its early years the Order had had a lengthy ritual that was heavily influenced by Freemasonry. This ritual had been set up by Mr. McMurray. It worked three degrees - Endentured Apprentice, fellow Workman and Perfect Artisan" (from Wikipedia)
