Administrative history

The Ladies Orange Benevolent Association (LOBA) is an auxiliary of the Orange Order. It was founded in 1894 to provide women with an opportunity to actively practice the principles of the Order. Like their male counterparts, the members of LOBA had to be both protestant and believers that Canada should remain a dominion within the British Empire.
LOBA focused on activities such as organizing functions within the Orange community, fundraising for charities, and helping maintain Protestant orphanages. LOBA members also participated in the annual July 12th parades, which celebrated William III's victory at the Battle of the Boyne.
These records are a compilation of organizational records from various Ladies Orange Benevolent Associations from across South Western Manitoba which were given to the Brandon Loyal Orange Lodge #1512 in Brandon, Manitoba as these organizations closed down.

Custodial history

The records were delivered to Daly House Museum by the last Worshipful Master Robert Booth of the Brandon Loyal Orange Lodge # 1512 on behalf of the Grand Orange Lodge of Western Canada. Daly House Museum contacted the Grand Lodge of Western Canada and received permission in 2008 to acquire, have title, and to make the records available for research use with no restrictions on access, copying or publication.
