Initial List of 33rd Degree Masons

The largest worldwide society, Freemasonry is an organization of men based on the “fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man,” using builders’ tools as symbols to teach basic moral truths generally accepted by persons of good will. Their motto is “morality in which all men agree, that is, to be good men and true.” It is religious in that a belief in a Supreme Being and in the immortality of the soul are the two prime requirements for membership, but it is nonsectarian in that no religious test is used. The purpose of Freemasonry is to enable men to meet in harmony, to promote friendship, and to be charitable. Its basic ideals are that all persons are the children of one God, that all persons are related to each other, and that the best way to worship God is to be of service to people

Although Craft Freemasonry is worldwide in the sense that it exists in most parts of the non-communistic world, and even underground in parts of the eastern bloc, it has no international organisation. The Ancient and Accepted Rite of the Thirty-Third Degree is the only cohesive Masonic group run on truly international lines. The Supreme Council in London in London is one of many Supreme Councils in various parts of the globe, of which the senior is the Supreme Council of Charleston, USA, which effectively operates a worldwide network of Freemasons in the most powerful positions in the executive, legislative, judiciary and armed forces as well as industry, commerce and professions of many nations’

In England only 75 Freemasons can be 33rd degree at one time.

  Headquarters of  Supreme Council 33 Degree is at 10 Duke Street, London. (Known as Grand East by Masons)  The building contains a ‘Black Room’ a ‘Red Room’ and a ‘Chamber of Death’ for ritual purposes.  No Mason can rise above the 18th Degree without the unanimous agreement of the entire Supreme Council. The most senior 33rd Degree Mason is known as the ‘Most Puissant Sovereign Commander’  The English working of the rite – sometimes known by the code name Rose Croix from the title of the initiate to the 18th Degree – differs from the American in one basic respect. In England and Wales only a few of the 33rd degrees are conferred by special ritual, while in the USA each degree has its own initiation ceremony. In England the 4th to the 17th Degrees are conferred at once and in name only during initiation of the selected Freemason to the 18th Degree. To the few who rise higher than the 18th Degree, the 19th to 29th are conferred nominally during the ritual of initiation to the 30th Degree – that of Grand Elected Knight Kadosh or Knight of the Black and White Eagle.  Degrees above the 30th are conferred singly.

In order to receive the 33rd degree it was necessary for me to go to Washington DC. The initiation and related functions were to last three days….I flew to Washington National Airport and took a taxi to the ‘House of the Temple’ on Northwest 16th Street. Upon arriving at the Temple I was met by a receptionist who asked me if I was there to receive the 33rd degree. I was surprised to find a woman in those sacred Masonic precincts, but said that I was, and showed her my letter from the Supreme Council. She then told me that in order to receive the degree I would be expected to make a minimum donation of a very large sum of money (at least it was a very large amount for me) This took me completely by surprise for there had not been a word about a ‘minimum donation’ in the letter sent to me by the Supreme Council. I didn’t carry that amount with me and had left my chequebook at home, but I was able to borrow the money from one of the other men, and gave it to her. We candidates were all unhappy about this unpleasant surprise and grumbled to one another about it, but we were not unhappy enough to forsake the degree over it. We were too close to the top of the mountain to turn back at that point.
