On behalf of Sovereign Master Ray Vinson, the officers and members of Col. William Barret Travis Council No. 344 Allied Masonic Degrees, welcome!

The Allied Masonic Degrees (AMD) are an invitational organization and requires membership in the Royal Arch as well as the Symbolic Lodge. Membership is limited to 27 members per council.

Our meetings are held at White Rock Masonic Lodge No. 234, 15405 Addison Rd, Addison, TX 75001.


The Allied Masonic Degrees are detached degrees, some of which, many years ago, were conferred under Craft warrants and formed part of the then loosely-governed Freemasonry of the period. Many of these detached degrees became dormant in some places, although in others they were conferred as side degrees. In time, the better of these degrees were grouped together in an organized body under the title of the Allied Masonic degrees.

Each Council is limited to twenty-seven members.

Membership in a Council of the Allied Masonic Degrees is by invitation only and is predicated on membership in a Chapter of Royal Arch Masons.

In addition to perpetuating these degrees, there is another and equally important purpose to the Allied Masonic Degrees. It brings together in small groups Freemasons who are interested in the advancement of all branches of Masonry, preparing themselves to better serve the craft through the medium of study and research.
