MAKING MASON AT SIGHT
, a Mason at sight
, or Mason on sight
, is a non-Mason who has been initiated into Freemasonry and raised to the degree of Master Mason
through a special application of the power of a Grand Master
The process of making a Mason at sight was listed by Albert Mackey as the eighth of his “Twenty-Five Landmarks of Freemasonry”.
The customary method for raising a person to Master Mason through the rare process of recognizing him a Mason at sight has the Grand Master creating a new lodge for the single purpose of initiating the candidate. This “occasional lodge” is then dissolved when the reason for its creation – the initiation of the candidate – has been completed. However, while the process of recognizing a Mason at sight usually involves this procedure, Masonic historian Louis L. Williams has observed that “using his unique and unquestionable power, the Grand Master could pretty well proceed as he might see fit” such as simply decreeing the individual to be a Master Mason.
