It has been postulated what the number “322” under the skull and crossed bones of the Order’s logo or official emblem means. Since the organization was imported from Germany in 1832 as the second chapter of a German order, the “32” denotes the year of origination and the following “2” indicates that it is the second chapter of the organization.
Continuing from our previous entry (Part 7), a more likely theory is that “the Order is descended from a Greek fraternal society dating back to Demosthenes in 322 BC.… Bones records are dated by adding 322 [years] to the current year, i.e., records originating in 1950 are dated Anno Demostheni 2272”.
Inside the Order there are many other numbers and symbols that appear beside the names of the members in the “Catalogue” (or membership list). Although we don’t know for sure, Sutton makes some interesting speculations regarding their possible meaning. The Catalogue contains the birth names of the members, but Sutton tells us: “Entry into the Order is accompanied by an elaborate ritual and no doubt psychological conditioning. For example: Immediately on entering Bones the neophyte’s name is changed. He is no longer known by his name as it appears in the college catalogue but like a monk or Knight of Malta or St. John, becomes Knight so-and-so. The old Knights are then known as Patriarch so-and-so. The outside world are known as Gentiles and vandals.”
In the century and a half years since the Order was founded, active membership has evolved into a core group of perhaps twenty to thirty families, according to Sutton:
It seems that active members have enough influence to push their sons and relatives into the Order, and there is significant intermarriage among the families. These families fall into two major groups.
First, we find old line American families who arrived on the East Coast in the 1600s, e.g., Whitney, Lord, Phelps, Wadsworth, Allen, Bundy, Adams, and so on.
Second, we find families who acquired wealth in the last 100 years, sent their sons to Yale, and in time became almost old line families, e.g., Harriman, Rockefeller, Payne, Davison.… In the last 150 years, a few families in the Order have gained enormous influence in society and the world. (Antony Sutton, “America’s Secret Establishment”)
Although the “old line” families used to look down their blueblood noses at the nouveau riche, that is not so much the case anymore. They have discovered it takes money to maintain their power—not just the name—so if they couldn’t make it on their own, they “married” it into the family. But whatever it takes, you maintain the power at all costs.
The Order has penetrated every segment of American society, e.g., the White House, legislatures, political parties, foundations (charitable and otherwise), think tanks, policy groups, education, media, publishing, banking, business, industry, commerce, and even churches. In many cases, the Order is the founder of these organizations. It determines the goals and objectives, as well as the methods for achieving them, then usually installs the first president, chairman, or CEO and/or CFO. This explains why so many such organizations are based on the premise of secular humanism. Their roots can be traced directly back to active members of the Order.
Since it seems the most unlikely, let’s first take a look at the connection of the Order to the church. Although the percentage has declined in recent years, about two percent of the Order is in the church—all Protestant denominations.
A key penetration is the Union Theological Seminary, affiliated with Columbia University in New York. This Seminary, a past subject of investigation for Communist infiltration, has close links to the Order. Henry Sloane Coffin (1897) as Professor of Practical Theology at Union from 1904 to 1926 and President of Union Theological Seminary, also known as the “Red Seminary,” from 1926 to 1945. Union has such a wide interpretation of religious activity that it has, or used to have, an Atheists Club for its students.
Henry Sloane Coffin, Jr. (1949) was one of the Boston Five indicted on federal conspiracy charges.
And this is only part of the Order’s penetration into the church. (Antony Sutton, “America’s Secret Establishment”)
Mr. Sutton expands on the connection between the Order and the other areas, i.e., the law, communications, industry, the Federal Reserve/banking, and the White House/politics/government.
The major establishment law firms in New York are saturated with the Order.
In particular, Lord, Day, and Lord, dominated by the Lord family already discussed; also, Simpson, Thatcher, and Bartlett, especially the Thatcher family; David, Polk, Wardwell, and Debevoise, Plimpton, the Rockefeller family law firm.
There has been a significant penetration into communications. Some examples:
Henry Luce of Time-Life is in the Order.
So was William Buckley (’50) of National Review.
And Alfred Cowles (’31), president of Cowles Communications, Des Moines Register, Minneapolis Star
And Emmert Bates (’32) of Litton Educational Systems, plus
Richard Ely Danielson (’07) of Atlantic Monthly
Russell Wheeler Davenport (’23), Fortune
John Chipman Farrar (’18) of Farrar, Strauss, the publishers.
The most prestigious award in journalism is a Nieman Fellowship at Harvard University. Over 300 were granted from 1937 to 1968. The FIRST director of the Nieman Fund was member Archibald McLeash.
The oil companies have their links to the Order. Members Percy, Rockefeller, the Paynes, the Pratts, all link to Standard Oil. Shell Oil, Creole Petroleum, and Socony Vacuum also link. A wide variety of manufacturing firms have members in the Order, from the Donnelly family in Chicago (printers of The Official Airline Guide and other references); lumber companies like Weyerhauser, who is also a Trilateralist; Dresser Industries, and so on.
The Federal Reserve System
A dozen members can be linked to the Federal Reserve, but one appointment is noteworthy, Pierre Jay (’92), whose only claim to fame in 1913 was to run a private school and be an obscure vice president of Manhattan Bank, yet he became first chairman of the New York Federal Reserve, the really significant Federal Reserve.
The White House, Politics, and Government
This is the area where the Order has made headway, with names like Taft, Bush, Stimson, Chafee, Lovett, Whitney, Bundy, and so on. (Antony Sutton, “America’s Secret Establishment”)
Although we are not yet to our discussion of the CFR and TLC, we briefly address them here as they relate to Skull & Bones Chapter 322.
Though not looking for a spotlight on their discussions and activities, the CFR and TLC are not secret organizations in the sense that the Illuminati and Skull & Bones are secret. Their membership rosters are available to anyone who asks, and they are making the dates and locations of their meetings available to the media, though the media is not permitted inside to witness the activities, nor are members permitted to give interviews revealing what has occurred at the meetings (as spelled out in their bylaws).
“The Order is represented in these organizations, but does not always dominate. David Rockefeller, former chairman of the CFR, is not a member of the Order” (Antony Sutton, “America’s Secret Establishment”), but the family was represented in the Order by Percy Rockefeller; however, a later CFR chairman, Winston Lord, is a member of Bones.
Visualize three concentric circles, consisting of the inner core, the inner circle, and the outer circle. The outer circle is made up of large, open organizations (e.g., CFR or TLC) some of whose memberships are made up of Bones members. The inner circle is made up of one or more secret societies, such as Chapter 322. The inner core is believed to be a secret society within the Order, a decision-making core. As yet, the existence of this inner core cannot be documented, but evidence points to its existence. Sutton even believes that he could identify the chairman.
The CFR is the largest organization in the outer circle, with about twenty-nine hundred members at any one time (as many as the Order in its entire history). The TLC has 325 members worldwide, but only about eighty in the United States. Other groups in the outer circle include the Pilgrim Society, the Atlantic Council, the Bilderbergers, and the Bohemian Club (of San Francisco). As an example of the number of Bones members who are also members of the CFR, following are just the Bonesmen whose last names began with the letter “B”: “Jonathan Bingham (congressman); William F. Buckley (editor,National Review and the Order’s house conservative); McGeorge Bundy (foundation executive); William Bundy (Central Intelligence Agency); George Herbert Walker Bush ([former] president of the United States)” (Antony Sutton, “America’s Secret Establishment”).
The Trilateral Commission was founded in 1973 by David Rockefeller, who was not a member of the Order. The same appears to be true of many TLC members; however, if you investigate the family tree, you will find members of the Order sometimes as close as one generation removed, and in other cases in the family line in great numbers. Sutton points out that the TLC is not a conspiracy, it just doesn’t publish its activities too widely, as the general populace probably wouldn’t appreciate what it is planning for us behind closed doors.
Sutton reports that he “has openly debated with George Franklin, Jr., coordinator of the Trilateral Commission, on the radio. Mr. Franklin did show a rather ill-concealed dislike for the assault on his pet global New World Order—and made the mistake of attempting to disguise this objective.” Where the TLC is concerned, even though David Rockefeller is not a Bones member, keep these facts in mind: J. Richardson Dilworth, chief financial and administrative officer for the Rockefeller Family Associates, is a member of the Order, as was Percy Rockefeller (1900). And the TLC’s purposes, as portrayed in its own literature, are almost identical to those of the Order.
So far as Sutton can determine, William F. Buckley was the only member of both the Order and the Bilderbergers. The Pilgrim Society has no current Bones members, but the family names of past members are found, i.e., Aldrich and Pratt.
We have discussed the guarantees of success for Bones members, as well as the intermarriages to consolidate the power, wealth, and influence of the families. Now, we will look at the chain of influence.
“A chain of influence spread over many years guarantees continuity and must be extraordinarily impressive to any new initiate who doubts the power of the Order” (Cybrarian, “The Germanic Order of Skull and Bones,” CIAgents, last accessed December 5, 2010). “Members of the Order are to be found in every segment of society [or our existence]: in education, foundations, politics, government, industry, law, and finance. Consequently, at any time the Order can tap influence in any area of society.… [The major occupations, however, are in] law, education, business, finance, and industry” (emphasis added; Antony Sutton, “America’s Secret Establishment”). Percentages of Bones members in each area follows: 18 percent, law; 16 percent, education; 16 percent, business; 15 percent, finance; 12 percent, industry. The remaining 23 percent is scattered among all remaining occupations.
Sutton makes a good case for the interference of the Order in promoting wars and conflict in order to maintain and increase its world control: “If we can show that the Order has artificially encouraged and developed both revolutionary Marxism andnational socialism while retaining some control over the nature and degree of the conflict, then it follows the Order will be able to determine the evolution and nature of the New World Order” (emphasis added; Antony Sutton, “America’s Secret Establishment”).
Sutton makes the above statement while documenting a link between the Union Bank and support for the Nazis during World War II. He traced the flow of money through a long trail that attempted to hide its ultimate destination, and proved the involvement of at least eight men, four of whom were members of the Order (including Prescott Bush, father of President George H. W. Bush) and two of whom were Nazis.
As we conclude this section on the Skull & Bones, Brotherhood of Death, we want to discuss the spiritual aspects of the Order. Sutton tells us: “What happens in the initiation process is essentially a variation of brainwashing or encounter group processes. Knights, through heavy peer pressure, become Patriarchs prepared for a life of the exercise of power and continuation of this process into future generations. In brief, the ritual is designed to mold establishment zombies, to ensure continuation of power in the hands of a small select group from one generation to another. But beyond this ritual are aspects notably satanic.”
We can make at least three definite statements about links between the Order and satanic beliefs. First, photographic evidence documents the satanic device (as well as the name) of the skull and crossed bones. Second, there is a link to satanic symbolism. Third, the link between the Order and the New World Order has been well documented in such books asHidden Dangers of the Rainbow by Constance Cumbey.
The skull and crossed bones is not just a logo or printed artwork; photographs exist that show the use of actual skulls and bones in the ceremonies of the Order. According to other evidence, at least three sets of skulls and other assorted human bones are kept within the Bones Temple on the Yale campus. At best, that makes the members grave robbers. But using these bones for ceremonial purposes shows absolutely no respect for the dead, and is a blatantly satanic activity.
Cumbey identified and linked several organizations to the Order and its objectives. She identified Benjamin Creme and the Tara Center as a New Age phenomenon, then linked Creme to the Unity and Unitarian churches. Sutton continued the chain by pointing out the Order’s longstanding and significant link to these churches.

“Former president William Taft, whose father co-founded The Order, was President of the Unitarian Association in his time. Cumbey identifies the link between Hitler and the New Age movement and former research by this author linked The Order to the founding and growth of Naziism.… Cumbey states that the New Age movement plans to bring about a New World Order ‘which will be a synthesis between the U.S.S.R., Great Britain, and the United States’” (Antony Sutton, “America’s Secret Establishment”). Later information indicates that it will come closer to encompassing the entire world, i.e., both industrialized nations and third-world countries.
“Finally, Cumbey points out that the anti-Christ and satanic aspects are woven into the cult of the New Age movement”. The goals and activities of the Skull & Bones and its leaders’ plans for our future are undoubtedly satanically inspired.
As we move on to investigate the groups that endeavor to control world governments, wars, etc., through control of finances, we will discuss US money and its emblems. That means going back into the discussion of the Illuminati and Freemasonry, as they are at the root of most of these satanic symbols.
