Famous Mason Of The Day James Hoban James Hoban was born circa 1758 in Ireland. Hoban worked and studied as a carpenter and wheelwright as he excelled in his studies. In 1780, he received the famed Duke of Leinster's medal for some of his architectural drawings. This lead to an apprenticeship at the Dublin Society School under the tutelage of architect Thomas Ivory. Hoban immigrated to America at the age of 19, and established a career in architecture. In 1792, Hoban entered a competition to design an "American Presidential Palace". Hoban's entry was judged as the winner among eight other desings, and was sent to the District of Columbia at the request of President George Washington to begin the work. The following year, as the Worshipful Master of Federal Lodge No. 1, along with President George Washington and many other notable figures and Freemasons, laid the cornerstone of the White House. Brother Hoban was called from labor on December 8th, 1831 in Washington D.C. and was laid to rest at the historic Mount Olivet Cemetery.
