Harold Clayton Lloyd was an American comedian and film producer best known for his silent comedy films. He made over two hundred comedy films between 1914 and 1947 and was more prolific than his contemporary Charlie Chaplin. 

In 1925, Lloyd entered into Freemasonry at the Alexander Hamilton Lodge No. 535 of Hollywood, and then joined Al Malaikah Shrine in Los Angeles. In recognition of his services to the nation and Freemasonry, he was vested with the Rank and Decoration of Knight Commander Court of Honor (KCCH) and eventually with the Inspector General Honorary, 33rd degree. As his movie work declined, he devoted more time to Masonry, becoming Potentate of the Los Angeles Temple in 1939. By 1949, he had become Imperial Potentate of the Shrine in North America and was installed into this prestigious position at Soldier Field in Chicago with Harry S. Truman, then President of the United States and fellow Shriner, in attendance.
