Description
Photograph shows a man and sixteen women sitting on the outside steps of the Scottish Rites building, all are wearing a cap with the word "Sciots" on it.
The cap is the public badge of a Scottish Rite Mason. It is considered a part of the uniform and the different colors indicate the degree of the wearer. The word "Sciot" is and Ancient Egyptian Order and its motto is to "unite all Master Masons in a closer bond of friendship, fellowship and cooperation" and in so doing, each petitioner promises that he will endeavor to visit his Lodge, or a Lodge in his jurisdiction, at least once a month.
