One of America’s most prestigious and storied secret societies, Yale University’s Skull and Bones, may be a little less secret if archivists at President George W. Bush’s presidential library in Dallas get their way.
More than 1,000 pages of letters, memos, a draft speech and other materials relating to Skull and Bones are set for release in July, unless Bush or President Barack Obama move to block the disclosure, according to the National Archives.
“Included is correspondence from individuals, organizations, and children to President George W. Bush, Laura Bush, Andrew Card, and Karl Rove; routine memoranda regarding government awards and promotions; and draft correspondence from the White House with background material,” the National Archives said in an official notice to attorneys for Bush and Obama.
The notice from the National Archives, which oversees the White House records stored at the Bush Library, says the records were requested under the Freedom of Information Act. The notice doesn’t specify who asked for the files, but other records consulted by POLITICO indicate it was Robert Gaylon Ross Sr., the author of several books alleging broad-based conspiracies by elites in America and around the globe.
One of Ross’ works, “Who’s Who of the Elite,” is a frequently-updated directory identifying purported members of groups often at the heart of various conspiracy theories, including the Bilderbergs, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission and Skull and Bones.
