The most elite US secret society, largely unknown until its influence was publicised by Antony Sutton, who highlighted in particular its members' apparently insatiable desire for power and their mutual loyalty in spite often of public antagonism.

Skull and Bones is a secret society started at Yale University in 1832, which played a major role in the evolution of the US deep state. A member of the Skull and Bones society is referred to as a 'bonesman'. Until 1992, membership was entirely male. Antony Sutton speculates in The Federal Reserve Conspiracy that the three senior societies at Yale (Skull & Bones, Scroll & Key and Wolf's Head) may in fact be closely allied.

Official Narrative

The society was little known until historian Antony Sutton publicised it through his book America's Secret Establishment: An Introduction to the Order of Skull & Bones. An anonymous source provided him with an 8 inch stack of documents and membership lists. He reports that 15 final year students are initiated into the society every year, and that its members have a great loyalty to one another. The specific purposes of the society are unclear, but Sutton reports that bonesmen are quite predictable in seeking power.[1]


Yale's Secret Exclusive Society Producing America's Leaders (Dutch documentary)[2]

Sutton claims that the society took de facto control of Yale University within 50 years.[3]

Controlling the discourse

“The Order we are about to investigate [Skull and Bones] had great foresight, back in the 1880s, to create both the American Historical Association and the American Economic Association (most economists were then more historians than analysts) under their terms, with their people and their objectives. Andrew Dickson White was a member of The Order and the first President of the American Historical Association.”
Anthony Sutton (2002)  [4]

Seeking Power

The quotation "We Will Lead Every Revolution Against Us" (widely attributed to Theodor Herzl) seems quite apposite in the context of skull and bones. Webster Tarpley writes that "William Sloane Coffin, tapped for 1949 Skull and Bones by George Bush and his Bone companions, was from a long line of Skull and Bones Coffins. William Sloane Coffin was famous in the Vietnam War protest days as a leader of the left protest against the war..."[5]

Notable Members

Wikipedia has a longer list of members which is probably more or less correct. While some have achieved prominence through sport or art, most are senior figures of political, legal or commercial institutions


In 1991, the Russell Trust changed the locks to the tomb and kept that year's class out because they allowed women.[6][7]


Kevin Flaherty wrote "I think that 322 at Operation Mockingbird Washington Post is them flipping us the bird and saying, “We got away with it. All of it.”"[8]

The Skull and Bones logo includes the number "322", the significance of which has been the subject of much speculation since the society was founded.[9][10] Whatever its original meaning, it has become a secret reference to the group.[11]


Anthony Sutton concluded that Skull and Bones is connected to a German group which is: "Almost certainly Illuminati" (the Bavarian Illuminati).[12] Kris Millegan has made the connection as well.[13]


Geronimo's descendants have sued Skull and Bones claiming that its members stole the remains of the legendary Apache leader.[14][15]
