Florence was a world-renowned actor, and while on tour, he was invited to a party given by an Arabian diplomat. The exotic style, flavor and music of this Arabian themed party gave Florence an idea. He took many notes and made drawings of the costumes and decorations. When he returned, Fleming took the ideas supplied by Florence and converted them into what would become the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine (A.A.O.N.M.S.). That's where the Arabic and Egyptian themes came from originally.
