Robinson first began studying Freemasonry in the early 1980s and came to the attention of Masons with his book “Born in Blood: The Lost Secrets of Freemasonry” presenting a believable explanation for a connection between the Knights Templars and modern-day Masons. A second book, “Dungeon, Fire and Sword: The Knights Templar in the Crusades” soon followed. He soon found himself regularly speaking to Masonic and non-Masonic groups: the former having a profound interest in his findings while the latter often concerned about perceived secrecy and imagined wrong-doings.

In 1993, Robinson published “A Pilgrim’s Path: One Man’s Road to the Masonic Temple” in which he described his experiences with Masons and those against them. Masonic authors praised the work as comprehensive and profound. As a result of his interactions with Masons, he ultimately petitioned a lodge and became Brother Robinson – as explained in his book. Regretfully, not long afterwards, he became ill and passed to the celestial lodge above.

The Masonic Information Center is a lasting tribute to his interest in and acceptance of Freemasonry as a way of life.
