A Brotherhood Without Borders

Exponential Growth: Frank Land never imagined that DeMolay would spread as fast as it did. In March of 1922, DeMolay had been established in 39 of what were then the 48 United States, as well as in the District of Columbia. It was then that Dad Land had the thought to spread DeMolay to other countries. He was a strong believer that DeMolay should not be limited to just the United States, and thus he set out to make that a reality. Today, we are lucky to be an international organization sharing DeMolay on 5 continents, and in more than 25 countries worldwide. Take a look below at where DeMolay has spread since its humble start in Kansas City, MO.
