Yale Secret Societies – Cyclopedia of Fraternities

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.
