Medallion

Odd Fellows Medallion. Judah Philip (J.P.) Davies' eldest son, Joshua Davies, was an accountant in his father's auction house and took over the business when his father died. He was president of the Royal Jubilee Hospital and belonged to the Odd Fellows, the Masons, and the Pioneer and British Columbia Benevolent Societies. During his two terms as Grand Master of the Odd Fellows, he made it the strongest and wealthiest club in the province. Because of his extraordinary efforts as a member of the Odd Fellows, Joshua Davies was awarded this medallion.
