When penetrating the swirling mists of legend and conspiracy veiling the Yale University secret society known as “Skull and Bones”, one inevitably stumbles upon the strange case of Geronimo’s skull. While the jury is still out on whether Prescott Bush (future U.S. Senator and father of George H.W. Bush) was one of the bandits and just exactly where the cranial remains of that fierce Apache warrior rest, let me introduce another bone for us to pick…The Apache Kid.
Here is some light reading on the origins and rituals of the senior Secret Societies at Yale including Skull and Bones, Scroll and Key, and Wolf’s Head. The oldest of these fraternities (Skull and Bones) stretches all the way back to the 1830’s and has accounted among its membership some of the most prominent family names in America including Bush, Taft, Whitney, Stimson and Luce to name a few. Its place as a nexus of wealth and power in America should not be ignored.
