United Supreme Council

History

     Dealing with the challenges of today requires problem-solvers who bring different perspectives and are willing to take risks. The United Supreme Council, AASRM, 33rd And Last Degree Of Freemasonry, For The Southern and Western Masonic Jurisdiction, USA emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support the masonic community, and a desire for actions to speak louder than words. Established in 1869, we are an organization driven by progressive ideas, bold actions, and a strong foundation of support. The following pioneers were devoted to "Making Good Men Better."
