Tomorrow, July 12, will be the 34th anniversary of the Feast of Major Grady Louis McMurtry, Gnostic Saint and first head of Ordo Templi Orientis following the death of Karl Germer, who celebrated his Greater Feast without specifying a successor. Born October 18, 1918, in Oklahoma, McMurtry met Aleister Crowley while serving with the US Army during World War II, and was initiated into the IXth Degree of O.T.O. in 1943. He led a revival of O.T.O. in the 1970s and 80s.
