Famous Mason Of The Day John Philip Sousa John Philip Sousa was born in Washington D.C., on November 6, 1854. Sousa was an celebrated composer and conductor who specialized in march composition. Known as the "American March King", his mastery of march music is apparent in his now immortal compositions. Possibly his best known composition is "The Stars and Stripes Forever" which has been declared the official National March of the United States by act of congress. Among is other timeless works are "The Liberty Bell", The Washington Post", "Semper Fidelis" which is the official march of the U.S. Marine Corps, and "The Thunderer". Sousa's extensive Masonic career in Washington D.C., began when he was initiated into Hiram Lodge No. 10, on July 15, 1881. On March 10, 1886, he was Knighted in Columbia Commandery No. 2, Knights Templar, and on April 21, 1922 became a Shriner in Almas Temple, A.A.O.N.M.S., and was named honorary leader of the Almas Temple Band. Brother John Philip Sousa was called from labor on March 6, 1932 at the age of 77, and was laid to rest with Masonic Services at the Congressional Cemetery in Washington, D.C..
