    Paul–to your knowledge is there any record that Prof Francis G. Guittard was made a member of the NoZe Brotherhood?

      Charles,
      Thank you for your devoted interest in our blog! Unfortunately, we do not have any membership lists or files for the NoZe Brotherhood so we cannot confirm or deny Prof. Francis G. Guittard’s involvement in the organization. I would suspect they do not exist, due to the nature of the organization. If they did, they would most likely only include an individual’s NoZe name.
