Walter B. Mason was a Superior Court of Connecticut judge.

In 1957, Mason received a request for a search warrant from Officer James Waterhouse of the Bedford police department to look into the college office of archaeologist and Marshall College professor Indiana Jones who was suspected of being involved in "anti-American" activities.

Mason decided that he had sufficient proof to grant the request and directed any state police officer who found that Jones had possessions of a "Communist nature" to bring them to him at the court.
