As Hymenaeus Alpha, Grady himself served as national grand master and acting Outer Head of the Order, in addition to being master of the original lodge of the Order’s revival, an office which he held for exactly 93 months until his death on 12th July 1985 e.v. The document which certifies this event, and which was sealed that day with Crowley’s ring by his Caliph, reads:
“Let all Thelemites know that I, Hymenaeus Alpha, 777, IX° O.T.O., 9=2, Caliph of the Ordo Templi Orientis of Aleister Crowley, Baphomet, 666 — do hereby Charter Thelema Lodge as Grand Lodge of O.T.O., the officers of this Lodge to be appointed, to serve, and to withdraw from service at my direction or at the direction of my duly designated successor. Witness my hand & seal given at Berkeley, California in the United States of America on October 12th An. LXXIII E.N. or 1977 E.V.”
(sealed and signed) Hymenaeus Alpha, Caliph.
