Carl Albert

Former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives - "In reflecting on my forty-nine years of public service, I find that the precepts of the Order of DeMolay have been invaluable to me. This was particularly true the two times I was just a heartbeat away from the presidency of the United States and faced very difficult decisions. My public life, as well as my private life, has been guided by the DeMolay vow – to love and serve God, my country, and my fellow man.” Also a prominent member of Kappa Alpha Order.

Cartoonist, Producer, Creator & Businessman - "I feel a great sense of obligation and gratitude toward the Order of DeMolay for the important part it played in my life. Its precepts have been invaluable in making decisions, facing dilemmas and crises. DeMolay stands for all that is good for the family and for our country. I feel privileged to have enjoyed membership in DeMolay."

Paul Harvey

"It seems that today, many young Americans flock to gangs. They are starved for a surrogate family. They don't have to be. In my generation, and in this one, there is DeMolay to funnel the energies of young Americans into building challenging, inspiring, rewarding, and constructive lives for themselves. Young Americans, it's all here in DeMolay. Come and get it!"

The First "Ronald McDonald", and deemed as "America's Most Beloved Weatherman"


Willard Scott


Fran Tarkenton

NFL Quarterback who led the Minnesota Vikings to three NFC Championship Games, a Pro Football Hall of Fame Inductee - "It is a great honor to be inducted into the DeMolay Hall of Fame. In today's society where there is so much violence and heartache, it's a gratifying feeling to know there is such a fine organization as DeMolay to look up to and lean on for guidance and support. I am proud to be a member!"
