Freemasonry is a fraternal organization that traces its origins to the local fraternities of stonemasons, which from the end of the fourteenth century regulated the qualifications of masons and their interaction with authorities and clients. Mark I. Forkner was a member of the Masons of North Dakota, and was designated as a worshipful master from 1917 to 1918. He was later installed as Grand Master in 1934.
