He was also a member of the Society of Descendants of the Mayflower and the Sons of the American Revolution, the University Club of Pittsburgh, Tancred Commandery, Knights of Templar, Mystic Shrine and a Thirty-second degree Mason. He was also active in the affairs of the Oakland Episcopal Church of which he was a member.
