Thanks Kate! It was an RDA Toolkit user malfunction that I didn't find
it. I did a keyword search on the word "chapter" and looked on the
results screen for anything from chapter 11 and I didn't find it. The
problem was that I didn't notice that there were more than 25 results and
I had to continue to look at later results. I also tried "lodge" as a
keyword search and got nothing. And there was no link in AACR2 24.9 in
RDA Toolkit, to RDA 188.8.131.52.
That takes care of the addition of local place if the corporate body is
subordinate. But it still is NOT clear if a body such as "Leif Erikson
Lodge No. 1" fits any of the categories in RDA for subordinate entry. The
name is not "general in nature" (184.108.40.206.3) and it is not clear to us
that it "SIMPLY [emphasis added] indicates a geographic, chronological, or
numbered or lettered subdivision of a parent body." There's nothing in
the LCC-PC PSs like there is in LCRI 24.9 that tells us that subordinate
entry should be done in all these cases.

> We recently had to set up a body called Leif Erikson Lodge No. 1. It's a lodge within the Sons of Norway. It's not clear to us that "Leif Erikson Lodge No. 1" SIMPLY indicates a numbered subdivision of a parent body.
> "Lodge No. 1" would we think. But does "Leif Erikson Lodge No. 1"? As best we can determine there are many other Leif Erikson Lodges within Sons of Norway, but no other numbered No. 1. So the question is, which is the correct RDA result:
> Sons of Norway (U.S.). Leif Erikson Lodge No. 1 (Seattle, Wash.)
> Leif Erikson Lodge No. 1
> Leif Erikson Lodge No. 1 (Seattle, Wash.)
> Leif Erikson Lodge No. 1 (Sons of Norway (U.S.))
> or something else?
> If the answer is as we did it in AACR2 (the first result given above), then there's nothing in RDA or a policy statement that says to add the local place name as a qualifier unless it's part of the name. Don't we need a policy statement if we want to continue to get the same result as we did in AACR2?
> I searched OCLC authorities for RDA fraternal lodges and did not find any that were established differently than we were doing in AACR2. That implies that catalogers are not really applying RDA as written but simply carrying over their knowledge of AACR2 and the LCRI for 24.9.
