    Frank Land, founder of DeMolay and an accomplished artist, designed the DeMolay crest. This is not a surprise until noted that he designed the crest in 1908, fully eleven years before DeMolay existed! He sketched the crest one evening in art class upon becoming disinterested in the instructor's still-life assignment. The instructor's sister, Nell Swiezwski, caught him goofing off. As sometimes happens, one thing led to another and Brother Land married Nell. In one evening Frank Land had designed an emblem for a future worldwide organization and met his future bride. Not a bad evening's work.
