WASHINGTON AS A MASON
Alexandria, Virginia, was chosen as the site of the $4,000,000 George Washington Masonic National Memorial because the first president was the first Worshipful Master of Alexandria-Washington Lodge No. 22 of that city, which is just across the Potomac river from the national capital. This lodge is the custodian of many priceless relics of the Father of His County and owns the famous Williams Portrait of Washington, which is considered by many to be the most truthful of all the many portraits of him extant.
The cornerstone of this imposing edifice will be laid Thursday, November 1, 1923.
