Karl Germer and Frederic Mellinger about H.J. MetzgerFriedrich Mellinger not only is an example of what kind of people were attracted to the O.T.O. but he is also one of its few members who have been linked to Theosophy. Most favoured in the American Crowley-O.T.O.-group and also in the Swiss-Reuss/Crowley-O.T.O., a rather well-educated individual Mellinger soon became disappointed with these O.T.O.-versions and its low-educated members and lent his strength and power for activities of the development of German Theosophy.
