Bring Me the Head of…


A Yale University historian has uncovered a 1918 letter that seems to lend validity to the lore that Yale University’s ultra-secret Skull and Bones society swiped the skull of American Indian leader Geronimo.
The letter, written by one member of Skull and Bones to another, purports that the skull and some of the Indian leader’s remains were spirited from his burial plot in Fort Sill, Okla., to a stone tomb in New Haven that serves as the club’s headquarters.
According to Skull and Bones legend, members – including President Bush’s grandfather, Prescott Bush – dug up Geronimo’s grave when a group of Army volunteers from Yale were stationed at the fort during World War I. Geronimo died in 1909.
“The skull of the worthy Geronimo the Terrible, exhumed from its tomb at Fort Sill by your club… is now safe inside the (Tomb) together with his well worn femurs, bit & saddle horn,” according to the letter, written by Winter Mead.

If it is him, at least he’s inside somewhere warm. The amazing thing to me is the article itself. It must have been written by a Bushie, because nowhere does it scream…

the SECRET rich boy, Ivy League society that PRESIDENT BUSH is a member of!!!!

Talks about his grampa Prescott making off with the skull and an abbreviated members list, including a certain Senator John “You Don’t Know Jefferson” Kerry, President Taft, etc. But no “W” cheap shot. How weird is that? Must be an off day.
I’m doing a screen shot just in case someone realizes they f*cked up.

    Winter Mead is good, but unfortunately out of season for the nonce.
    Geronimo Schmeronimo. In the secret society I was a member of at Dartmouth, we had the mummy of Hammurabi, the islets of Langerhans of Tamberlaine, and the wisdom teeth of Thor. And also a half-barrel of cold Molson on tap 24/7.

  2. Dan Collins says:

    It was so secret that we weren’t even aware that we were members.

  3. It couldn’t have been much of a society if I wasn’t invited.

    If we’d have known that you had the bust of Nefertiti, you would have been invited.

  5. That bust’s brought a ‘tiri to many eye, Dan.
