TS - Activities of General Council - Unnecessary Secrecy

HISTORY OF THE THEOSOPHICAL MOVEMENT IN BRADFORD (1891 - 1941)
In the write up on Bradford TS (the link at the bottom has full text) there
is a significant comment which I quote:
"In those days it was the custom to appoint an officer to be in direct
contact with both Headquarters and the lodge, and who should keep the lodge
informed of the activities of the General Council of the Society. *Mrs.
Cooper-Oakley* undertook that task prior to and during the early days of the
lodge. On one occasion *Dr. Wynn Westcott* deputised for her."
So in those days, there was a free communication between what went on in the
General Council and lodge. At present, even though the National Secretary is
represented on the General Council, the activities of General Council are
kept secret and never communicated to the lodges and in turn the membership.
Some one with historical background, may want to research what, when and why
the change to "unnecessary secrecy" was made. Research also can help us
understand what was gained by the secrecy and what was lost by the secrecy.
