An order of Oddfellows is an organization, lodge, or guild of people who do not qualify for membership in an established professional organization, the common people, the people who do unusual or unfashionable work, or those who for one reason or another prefer not to identify with their trade or profession.
The name appealed to me immediately. I've always felt myself an outsider. An oddment, an oddity, an oddfellow.
