Albert Gallatin Mackey Medal
At the Annual Communication of the Grand Lodge of South Carolina in March 1934, Grand Master, E.S.C. Baker, made a recommendation near the end of his Grand Master's Address that "a Grand Lodge Medal, to be known as the Albert Gallatin Mackey Medal" be established. It was to be awarded in the judgment of the Grand Master "to any Mason for distinguished service in Masonry."
The Albert Gallatin Mackey Medal is the enduring manifestation of honor to Brother Mackey. He was a man of great accomplishment. His Masonic writings are continually read and studied even today. He was and still is respected the world over for his contributions to Freemasonry. It is only fitting that such a man be remembered through this lasting tribute. May the recipients of this medal remember what it stands for and strive always to uphold its honor and dignity.
