Famous Freemasons in History

Throughout the history of Freemasonry many men of influence and accomplishment have been drawn to the fellowship of the fraternity. Some, by society's standards, were successful men before they petitioned for membership. Others went on to accomplish great things because they put into practice the lessons and teachings of Masonry.

Below is a partial list of the famous Freemasons we have thus far identified. No doubt there are many more. Some may choose not to be publicly identified due to their position and the confusion that surrounds membership in the Craft. We will endeavor to continue to add to this list bearing in mind the proper considerations to privacy.
