Today's picture was taken in 1923. Oh my, is that a Shriner's hat he is wearing? Please don't tell me Sousa was a freemason. Don't even get me started on the freemasons. Well, I am already started. Maybe we should do a week on secret societies and diabolical organizations.
Sousa actually was a mason, and composed some music called, "Nobles of the Mystic Shrine", which you can listen to below, if you want to.
