It is my conviction that Carl Kellner had as much to do with the O.T.O. as Rudolf Steiner (or Franz Hartmann or the Hermetic Brotherhood of Light) :

Nothing.

Of course, they both knew Theodor Reuss personally and they shared mutual interest in Yoga, but to render this common interest as the basis for either Steiner or Kellner as ancestors of the O.T.O. is historically unproven.
It was only after Kellner's death in 1905 that Reuss started to develop a study group that was later called O.T.O. — Maybe this group consisted of yoga practitioners of Kellner's private circle, maybe this group was made up by members of the many para-masonic organisations to which both Kellner and Reuss belonged. But all this is in NO WAY evidence of Kellner being either the founder of the O.T.O. or the man who inspired it.
It was 7 years after Kellner's death [!] that Theodor Reuss published that Kellner was the co-founder of the O.T.O.
