Skull and Bones of Geronimo

As reported in today’s news briefs, there’s a news story currently getting quite a bit of play in the mainstream media regarding the theft of the bones of the famous Native American leader ‘Geronimo’ by the Yale secret society Skull and Bones. For those interested in checking out the original source of information, it is this article in the current Yale Alumni magazine (also available in its original format as a PDF). There’s also a more skeptical article here.

Skull and Bones counts both U.S. presidential contenders in 2004 (George W. Bush and John Kerry), as well as numerous other important individuals in high finance and government, among its members. Interestingly, in his investigation of the society Antony C. Sutton described their philosophy as Hegelian, in that they strove to control opposite sides of a conflict, in order to control the outcome (perfectly fitting the most recent U.S. presidential election). It has long been rumoured that they stole the bones of Geronimo, but this new revelation adds some circumstantial evidence to that rumour.

  1. More on the Skull & Bones theft of Geronimo’s skull
    This rumor has been around for some time that the semi-Masonic Skull and Bones club at Yale University stole the skull and a few of the bones of the great Apache chief Geronimo. This involved Prescott Sheldon Bush, the grandfather of George W. Bush.

    Greg has provided links regarding the new evidence that has emerged to support this. Thanks!

    I have a bit more to throw into the mix. My article “Phoenix: Masonic Metropolis?” appears in the May/June 2006 issue (#57) of Atlantis Rising. However, the last three hundred words or so were deleted by the editor, perhaps because of their political stance. Well, here they are:

    Alas, Poor Geronimo

    Many local history buffs portray early pioneers as hardy, pragmatic individualists who were more concerned with prospecting, gambling, and imbibing whisky than with studying arcane lore. In most cases, this is probably true. In the same sense, most Masons are ordinary businessmen who just want to further their careers while enjoying camaraderie and offering charity to the community at large.

    However, inside each citizenry and each lodge exists a cabal of operatives who long to achieve power and further their own ultimate goals or those of their ancient organization. B.P. Darrell Duppa and John T. Alsap may have been such men. [These two Freemasons were both mentioned previously in the article in connection with the founding of Phoenix, Arizona.]

    An even more insidious instance of power and wealth was Prescott Sheldon Bush (1895-1972). He was father of the forty-first U.S. president George Herbert Walker Bush and grandfather of the forty-third president George W. Bush. All three had been members of the notorious Skull and Bones Society, an elite, quasi-Masonic fraternity at Yale University.

    Possibly the eldest Bush was named after his distant relative William Hickling Prescott, the historian noted above [in the article]. In 1918 Bush allegedly purloined the skull of the famous Arizona Apache warrior Geronimo from its resting place at Fort Sill, Oklahoma and took it back to the secret society’s meeting hall to be displayed in a glass case. The motive for this savage act is unclear, but it may have involved retribution for the 1869 killing of settler James G. Sheldon from Maine by Apaches at Camp Willow Grove west of Prescott [a town in Arizona– the first territorial capital before it was moved to Phoenix]. Sheldon, after whom a major street in Prescott was named, is perhaps a relative of Prescott Sheldon Bush, or he may merely be a namesake whom Bush was trying to avenge.

    Bush was later elected as a U.S. senator from Connecticut. His son and grandson, of course, each became president. The Bush vacation home is located in Kennebunkport, Maine. Geronimo’s skull has never been recovered.

      Hi Gary,

      well done for publishing the ‘missing texts’ from your article. I’m not sure why the AR editor decided to pull those paragraphs, considering your prudent use of the word “allegedly” and all that.

      Maybe the article was just 4 or 5 paragraphs too long. Maybe the editor is a Bonesman?

      yer ol’ pal,

      1. Geronimo!
        Hi Xibalba,

        The article might have been too long. I don’t really think so though. I think the operative offensive phrase was “insidious instance of power and wealth,” referring to the Bushes. Maybe the editor is a Republican?


          1. The Bush influence is no allegation.
            If the Bushes’ power and wealth are not of an insidious ilk, then I don’t know what is. But then, I’m being politcal, which is not my aim.

            My point is that there is mounting evidence that Granddaddy Bush pilfered Geronimo’s skull to bring back to “the Tomb.” Crazy college kids!
