Ever wonder what the Masons are all about? Was your dad or granddad a Mason?

This program, open to all, will cover some of the history, purposes and activities of Freemasonry. Meet some of the members of MIT's Masonic Lodge, find out what Masons do, and what goes on behind the Square and Compasses.

If you have ever considered joining the world's largest fraternity, you will learn how to do it here. The three requirements needed to become a Mason are being male, 18 years of age, and belief in a Supreme Being.

Named for MIT's eighth president and a Mason, Richard C. Maclaurin Lodge has counted among its members Vannevar Bush and "Doc" Edgerton, along with many other MIT faculty, staff and student leaders. Come and learn if you should become a Mason, too.
