In my experience, the typical Tyler is an older Brother - most often grandfatherly in demeanor and transparent in motive. Usually opinionated yet well meaning, the stereotypical Tyler is a favorite in the Lodge. The "Old Tyler" articles seem to resonate our affinity for the office and whimsically profiles the gentleman which usually fills that station.
Our new Tyler, David Herman, fulfills all of the above listed precepts save one - he's in his forties. With less than a year in Gate City and sixteen in Freemasonry, David has held many stations: DDGM, Meld Committee, District Line, Director of Work and the East.
We are honored to have such a well seasoned, yet younger, man of the Craft as our Tyler. It doesn't get any better than that.
