The distinction of fellow is one of the highest awards that can be bestowed on a member of The Masonry Society.

He has supported and assisted in funding a variety of research projects and masonry courses.

During his three 2-year terms on TMS’ Board of Directors, he offered ways to promote membership and to provide economic stability of the society. His actions have followed his ideas: his becoming a sustaining member of the society; his support of three University Professor’s Masonry Workshops; and his promotion of a variety of Design Seminars and Masonry Testing Technician Programs.
