Order of the Arrow Handbooks

Order of the Arrow Handbook Checklist

In the first column an “X” indicates that I have the handbook in question, a “-” indicates I need that particular Handbook.

Each Handbook prior to 1989 has a code to determine which printing the book is from and the quantity of books printed. This code is normally listed beneath the copy right information. For example, 55M966 would indicate 55,000 thousand copies were printed in September 1966. If you find any printings not listed here, please let me know.For a span the easiest way to distinguish the year was the name of the National Chief on the Title Page. currently the Printing year is listed on the back cover.
