Description
Photograph of a watercolour portrait of Dr. Robert Kerr, Worshipful Master of Dalhousie Lodge, No. 2, a predecessor lodge of Niagara Lodge, No. 2. Robert Kerr was the Provincial Deputy Grand Master from 1797 to 1802. He was active in forming the schismatic Provincial Grand Lodge at Niagara and he served as Grand Master of the irregular Grand Lodge from 1807 to 1820, and again in 1822.
Photograph of a painting in the J. Ross Robertson Collection, Metropolitan Toronto Reference Library.

Notes
The portrait shows Dr Kerr seated in a chair at a table, wearing a gold-fringed Masonic apron. It means that he was a grand lodge officer, but he was not yet Deputy Grand Master (he became in 1797). The painting is attributed to the artist William von Moll Berczy (1748 - 1813) and was probably painted in 1794 in Newark (Niagara-on-the Lake).
