Skull and Bones - Skull and Bones is a secret
society at Yale University, in New Haven,
Connecticut, founded by William Huntington
Russell and Alphonso Taft, in 1832. Each year,
15 incoming Seniors are selected as "Bonesmen."
Members of this organization often become
those associated with the world's power elite.
Past members of Skull and Bones include, John
Kerry, George W. Bush, George H.W. Bush, Harold
Stanley (founder, Morgan Stanley), Pierre Jay
(first chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of NY), Richard Gow (President, Zapata Oil), Artemus Gates (President, New York Trust, Union Pacific, TIME, Boeing Company), and Amory Howe Bradford (Husband of Carol Warburg Rothschild), just to name a few. The Russell Trust Association is the business name for the Skull and Bones, and oversees the finances.
In 1943, by special act of the Connecticut state legislature, its trustees were granted an exemption from filing corporate reports with the Secretary of State.
There are also other secret societies at Yale, which include Scroll & Key, and Wolf's Head, but none have the reputation of Skull and Bones.

A secret society is a club or organization whose activities, events, and inner functioning are concealed from non-members. The society may or may not attempt to conceal its existence. Some of the most well known are the Bilderberg Group, Trilateral Commission, Illuminati, Skull and Bones, and Bohemian Grove.
Bilderberg Group - This is arguably one
of, if not the most famous secret society of
the last 60 years. It is said to be comprised
of 120-150 members of the global elite,
originally from the US and Europe, (now
expanded to other nations), with members
tied to political, business, and family
wealth backgrounds. The first conference
was held at the Hotel de Bilderberg in
Oosterbeek, Netherlands, from 29 to 31 May
1954. The group's original goal was to promote
US-European relations and preventing another
world war. This has since as grown to leverage the Bilderberg Group's power to "bolster a consensus around free market Western capitalism and its interests around the globe." Denis Healey, a Bilderberg group founder and, a steering committee member for 30 years, said, "To say we were striving for a one-world government is exaggerated, but not wholly unfair. Those of us in Bilderberg felt we couldn't go on forever fighting one another for nothing and killing people and rendering millions homeless. So we felt that a single community throughout the world would be a good thing.
