Robert McCay
McCay’s biography notes that he joined a masonic lodge in Chicago sometime between 1889 and 1891 but does not give the name. There are several references to Freemasonry in Canemaker’s book. McCay received a masonic funeral in New York, as did his father, Robert; a member of King Solomon’s No. 43 in Woodstock, Ontario, who later affiliated with a lodge in Michigan.
An unsigned illustration to a short story entitled Why there are no women masons is considered to be by McCay.
