For a start: Carl Kellner never was member of the Ordo Templi Orientis
NATIONAL GRAND MASTERS X° O.T.O. 1923
Of slightly less or doubtful provenance:
X° at the time of Theodor Reuss' death 28 October
PRETENDERS TO THE THRONE
- Crowley is not listed above as he was expelled by Reuss in 1921 (before Crowley declared himself OHO)!
after Crowley's death in 1947:
AND SOME DID NOT WANT IT
- Karl Johannes Germer repeatedly asserted (in writing) that HE WAS NOT
the OHO. He began to do this in 1948
and three months before he died in 1962 he was still writing
"I have no group or organisation".
- Hans Rudolf Hilfiker ('heir apparent' to Reuss: never claimed the OHO)
- Arnoldo Krumm-Heller: only claimed the OHO of the F.R.A.
- Friedrich Mellinger, did not realise he
could (was also opposed to Germer).
THOSE WHO RELY ON
GERMER FOR THEIR LINEAGE.
Excludes numerous Aleister Crowley
reincarnations, other less serious
claimants, and the insane. See also the discussion about the XI°.
ALEISTER CROWLEY'S EXECUTOR'S
- John Symonds, Louis Wilkinson:
The Literary Executors who, acting on verbal
instructions from Crowley, were unable to
prevent Germer destroying the O.T.O. in the
USA as Crowley suspected he might.
- Frieda Harris, Karl Germer:
The two Executors, who together with Louis
Wilkinson, acted in respect of the General
property and effects in Crowley's Estate.
This is an outline from the German "Das
OTO-Phaenomen" (1994) and the English "O.T.O. Rituals and Sexmagick" (1999).
