Brother George Washington The First “Masonic President”

The United States has had over 15 presidents who were members of the brotherhood. Some of them advanced in their masonic career while others did not make any notable progress after initiation. George Washington was officially inaugurated into the Presidency on 30th April 1789. This was a historic event for not only the nation but also Freemasonry. He marked the beginning of a long list of other masonic presidents to occupy the seat. Before his presidency, Washington had risen in rank to the position of Worshipful Master of Frederick Lodge No.4 in 1788, where he had been a lifelong member.  George Washington was a proud member of Freemasons. In his reply to King David’s lodge in Newport, Rhode Island (1970), he clearly indicated his feelings about the order:

“Being persuaded that a just application of the principles, on which the Masonic Fraternity is founded, must be promotive of private virtue and public prosperity, I shall always be happy to advance the interests of the Society, and to be considered by them as a deserving brother.”
