What is Dallas Freemasonry
Freemasonry provides a man the tools and maxims for leading an upright life; a means of rising to greatness. Greatness not defined in material, but in unlocking one’s inner potential.
Freemasonry is the world’s oldest fraternal society with its roots shrouded in the mists of antiquity. Since time immemorial our organizations have used the tools and teachings of our forebearers to guide its members towards self-improvement and consequently to the betterment of our respective societies. Freemasonry believes that a man’s greatness can be measured by his deeds and it is through his deeds that he can improve the world.
Thus, Knox-Corinthian Lodge prides itself on being an active member and
a leader of the Dallas masonic community. Our lodge is made up predominantly of conscience and charity driven professionals who work in tandem to improve our community. We actively charge our members to rise and lead. The records of the past leaders of freemasonry are filled with eminent men of their time such as the founders of this country. Our lodge is dedicated to creating an environment which will foster the leaders of tomorrow.
The Scottish Rite Hospital Connection
Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children opened its doors to the children of Texas in 1921. One of Dallas’ first orthopedic surgeons, W. B. Carrell, M.D., was approached by a group of Texas Masons who recognized a growing need to provide superior medical care to children suffering from polio regardless of a family’s ability to pay.
With the introduction of the Salk and Sabin vaccines in the mid-1950s, which virtually eradicated polio in the Western Hemisphere, the hospital broadened its focus to other orthopedic conditions. Helped by supporters throughout the country, Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children has emerged as one of the nation’s leading medical centers for the treatment of pediatric orthopedic conditions and sports injuries and fractures, as well as certain related arthritic and neurological disorders and learning disorders, such as dyslexia.
