Where are today's "famous" Freemasons?


"We represent a fraternity which believes in justice and truth and honorable action in your community... men who are endeavoring to be better citizens... [and] to make a great country greater. This is the only institution in the world where we can meet on the level all sorts of people who want to live rightly."— Harry S Truman, 33rd President of the United States

This list is a compilation from several sources, and no claims are made as to its accuracy. A few famous people who have been rumored to be Freemasons but for which no evidence can be found include presidents George Herbert Walker Bush, Bill Clinton, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Ronald Reagan and Lyndon Johnson, along with Thomas Paine, Neil Armstrong, Walt Disney, Charlie Chaplin, Bob Hope, Ringo Starr, Rev. Billy Graham, and Charles Taze Russell, the founder of Jehovah's Witnesses.


George H.W. Bush was sworn in as president on George Washington's Bible, which belongs to the St. John's Lodge of New York City. Clinton was a member of the Order of DeMolay as a teen, but never joined a masonic lodge. LBJ took his first degree in 1937, but never became a Fellowcraft or Master Mason apparently due to lack of time to pursue both his Congressional duties and his Masonic studies. Lincoln petitioned a lodge but withdrew his petition before being accepted, apparently to keep from appearing to be wanting to join for political reasons. In 1988, Reagan was given a Certificate of Honor from the Grand Lodge of Washington, D.C., and made an honorary member of the Scottish Rite and of the Imperial Shrine, but was never a Mason. See MasonicInfo.com for more information about famous Masons and non-Masons.

As I'm pasting into the blog this list I compiled several years ago, I'm struck by the fact that there are so few — two, actually (the actor Michael Richards and football star John Elway) — men on this list from my generation, or from "modern times." Are there are any "famous" Freemasons anymore, men known for high achievement in their chosen fields who are also Masons?

  1. A lot of people ask me how I like living in Costa Rica. My answer is, it was the best

    decision that I made in my life. I came to Costa Rica 7 years ago on a vacation and quickly

    fell in love with the beauty of the country and the hospitality of the people here. I

    couldn't wait to come back. I started coming here about 4 times per year and always had a

    great time and didn't want to leave. Two years ago, I decided to leave Arizona and come

    live in Paradise. I can not tell you how happy I am that I made that decision. Today, I

    wake up next to the ocean and run on the beach every morning. I eat the most delicious

    fruits, vegetables and fresh seafood. My stress levels are much lower than when I was

    living in the States and the potential here for investing, truly is unlimited. The best

    part of living here is showing our clients this country. I really don't feel like I have a

    job for the first time in my life. The joy I receive when I see the look on people's faces

    when they get into the warm water of the Pacific ocean is truly priceless. For those of you

    that have come and discovered paradise, you know what I am talking about. For those of you

    that are on the way, I can't wait to get you here. And to those who are thinking about

    Costa Rica, please do yourself a favor and come down. You will have the time of your life.

    We invite you to take a tour on our website, and if should more information is required:
