And it was he who a scant three weeks later on October 16, 2002 as Master of Mainstream Justice Lodge No. 285, Linwood New Jersey welcomed the visitation of Prince Hall Lodges No. 16, Hiram Abiff and No. 27, Prince Hall along with the Grand Masters
McCabe and his officers worked hard to put together one of the first joint meetings of PHA & Mainstream Masonry in the state of New Jersey. As a long time champion of Prince Hall Masonry, McCabe endeavored to make the occasion memorial and remembered by casting a plate with front and back inscriptions which you see here pictured.
But The Beehive cannot help but wonder at perhaps how much trouble championing Prince Hall might get you in. PGM Frank Haas of West Virginia met with Prince Hall Officers in the hopes of starting recognition. Derek Gordon of Arkansas championed Prince Hall recognition and boldly denounced the Grand Lodge ruling that the generic license plate created by Prince Hall Arkansas was clandestine. Counting McCabe all three, of course, have been expelled.
