How did Demolay and Masonry come to be associated?

The founder of DeMolay, Frank S. Land, was a Mason himself. As DeMolay grew and new chapters were being formed in the 1920’s, Land realized that each Demolay chapter would require a group of quality men to provide guidance and supervision for the young men. He felt that requiring DeMolay chapters to be sponsored by Masonic Lodges or a group of Masons would ensure that there would always be service-oriented men of quality and character to serve on the advisory council of a chapter.
