Microfilm Interloan Service

 

In 1905, Dr. Vincent Sellaro founded the Order Sons of Italy in America to "unite in one single family all the Italians scattered throughout the Americas...".

The first Canadian lodge of this fraternal organization was founded in Sault Ste Marie in 1915. By 1940, the Order had 29 lodges across Ontario. Currently, there are 15 lodges and a total of approximately 2300 members.
