In 1917 Mason achieved his first potentially permanent post, becoming Assistant Curator of Mexican and South American Archaeology for the Field Museum of Natural History, where he remained until 1924. During this period he excavated for more than a year at Santa Marta, Colombia, a then virgin field. He moved to the American Museum of Natural History as Assistant Curator of Mexican Archaeology 1924. His tenure there, under Whistler, was short. He felt that he could not afford to decline a then attractive offer of the Curatorship at the University of Pennsylvania Museum, which he accepted in 1926. After 29 year of service to the Museum, he met mandatory retirement. His association with the New World Archaeological Foundation began with a field trip tp Chiapas in 1958. During the same year he received the honorary degree of Doctor of Literature from Franklin and Marshall College.
