"Imperial Potentate" is, I've discovered, the name given to the North American head of the Shriners. So I'm assuming this cover actually openly features the head of the Shiners at that time, Harold Lloyd. Couldn't say if this is the same Harold Lloyd who was a well-known silent-era comedy actor. But why would the head of the Shriners be worthy of a Time Magazine cover story? This cover is the most blatent evidence of the influence of Freemasonry at Time Magazine, I would think.
