    Laban de Laban Grand Council and Senate of Ancient Freemasons of the Scottish and Memfis and Misraim Rite to his mother

    Laban de Laban wrote to his mother under the title of "Grand Council and Senate of Ancient Freemasons of the Scottish and Memfis [sic] and Misraim Rite" on November 14th 1917: "The lodge at Monte [Verità] has been closed down, the unsuitable members there — Henri, Ida, etc. — have been excluded, and I've transferred the headquarters from there to here [Zuerich]."




    After losing a court case against the A.M.O.R.C. (Antiquus Mysticus Ordo Rosae Crucis), Reuben Swinburne Clymer published his tomes "The Rosicrucian Fraternity in America" and "Book of Rosicruciae" from 1935 onwards, in order to prove that Spencer Lewis had falsified documents in his books, for example Laban de Laban's invitation to a "International Meeting of the Dames de la Rose+Croix" in 1917.

    Photographic details of this document: Theodor Reuss: O.T.O. 1918


    Laban departed Zuerich in November 1918 in the direction of Munich and Stuttgart, to dedicate himself to his career in dance. His successor was Hans–Rudolf Hilfiker.
    Mary Wiegmann had a licence to open her own women's lodge, but abandoned this idea and left the O.T.O. also on November 16th 1918; in 1920 she founded her own dance–academy in Dresden.
    The dance school location of Wiegmann and Suzanne Perrottet was rebuilt as temple of the Libertas et Fraternitas.

    Theodor Reuss National Grand Orient, World Congress of Freemasons in Zuerich 1920

    Theodor Reuss was planning to form a national Grand Orient, and to call a World Congress of Freemasons in Zuerich during the summer of 1920.
    A third point in the programme of the Congress was the enactment of Joanny Bricaud's proposal that Aleister Crowley's 'Gnostic Mass' "should be defined as the official religion of all followers of the Universal Freemasonic World Federation, including the 18th degree of the Scottish Rite."



    But:

    Masonic Congress against the O.T.O.

    Grand Orient and Theodor Reuss past history
    Grand Orient and Theodor Reuss past history
    Grand Orient and Theodor Reuss past history

    The Congress did not fulfill Reuss's hopes; the delegates seem to have turned on their nominal host almost unanimously, subsequently producing a number of declarations against the O.T.O.
    The 'Rosicrucian Chapter' of the 3rd of October 1920's Second Resolution: "[it was presumed] that the relations between the Grand Orient and Bro. Th. Reuss were definitely past history, and that the so-called Gnostic Catholic Church remains outside the International Union of Freemasons."
    +

    Libertas et Fraternitas wished to break free of Reuss.
    Protocol from the session of the Supreme Council held on November 6th-7th 1920: "Neither the Grand Orient, nor any of its members have any kind of connection with the 'Gnostic Mass' issued by Herr Reuss. [...] we have striven [...] since the 18th of July 1920 to disassociate our Grand Orient from any connection with Reuss's name, his writings."

    In the autumn of 1921, Reuss distanced himself from Aleister Crowley, turning towards the A.M.O.R.C. and to Arnoldo Krumm-Heller’s Rosicrucian organisation, the Fraternitas Rosicruciana Antiqua (F.R.A.).

    On May 17th 1925 Libertas et Fraternitas was received under the ægis of the regular Swiss Alpina Grand Lodge, which signified its renunciation of the Grand Orient and the Higher Degrees. Since then its history has had nothing more to do with the O.T.O. phenomenon.

    Baron Herbert von Bomsdorff-Bergen
    In lodge circles it was said that he liked to approach young and inexperienced Brothers in order to pull money out of their pockets. Formerly in Libertas et Fraternitas (he was expelled on May 8th, 1923), Bomsdorff-Bergen turned to writing pamphlets against Freemasonry and the O.T.O. in an anti-Semitic tone, under the pseudonym of 'Christian [Schweizer]kreuz'. He still maintained contacts with the Rosicrucians in Ticino from his estate in Morcote, which he had dubbed 'Klingsor's Magic Garden', and probably died in 1925.

    Alice Sprengel, Margerite /Margarethe Faas–Brunner-Hardegger and Frau Genja Jantzen were the O.T.O.'s "executive council of 3 (supreme council)" at the "Anational Grandloge & Mystic Temple, 'Verità Mistica', Or[ient] Ascona".
    After Frau Sprengel's death in 1947, Margerite Hardegger (alias Sister 'Hyacinth') was Genja Jantzen's rival for the position of Sprengel's successor in the O.T.O. Hardegger had already fallen out with Sprengel herself over a struggle for the office of Acting Master (chairmaster).

    The further history of the O.T.O. in Switzerland now takes place in the context of Hermann Joseph Metzger.
