¶ "B.J. van der Zuylen" was a Masonic pseudonym of Frans Eduard Farwerck (1889-1969) who was a Freemason between 1918 and 1934. He was deeply interested in the archaeological Germanic past of the Netherlands and became a member of the NSB in 1933 where he developed into an important propaganda leader alongside Anton Mussert, until he was expelled in 1940 because of his former membership of Freemasonry.
