What is it?
The Quarry Project Style Guide is an effort to establish consistent style for US Masonic writers and publishers—of periodicals, books, and websites. The guide gives direction on source citation, spelling, punctuation, capitalization, numbers, abbreviations, quotations, tables, figures, and format.
This guide is based on “Chicago style,” as presented in Kate L. Turabian, A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations, 8th ed. Users of the Quarry Project Style Guide also need a copy of that book. (Be sure not to use Turabian’s lower-level book, Student’s Guide to Writing College Papers.)
