Letter from Provo, Utah: Former President Gerald R. Ford

g and compass

Salt Lake Tribune

Obligations of Masonry

Public Forum Letter


I noticed The Tribune's coverage of the death of former President Gerald R. Ford described him as the last living president who was a Freemason.

That is quite true. Being a member of the Masonic Lodge myself, I am reminded of the various Masons who have served as president of the United States, beginning with George Washington. Some I admire greatly; others I admire less. But there can be no doubt that the honorable obligations inculcated in Masonry to walk uprightly and honor the glory of Almighty God were heeded by men such as James A. Garfield, William McKinley, Harry S. Truman and others who joined the fraternity.

This was the same sentiment which prompted Hyrum Smith, Joseph Smith, Jr., Brigham Young, Heber Kimball and John Taylor to join Masonry, too.

The fraternity is sometimes ridiculed, but just like President Ford it also rises to be praised by the many who saw the integrity and good works done.
