THE POETRY OF GRADY LOUIS McMURTRY 
In 1969, Grady would comment upon his poetry, writing - “I have been writing poetry since I was a teenager. Much to the amazement & shock
of my ‘Okie’ family who, I suspect, probably thought it was a sure indication that I was ‘queer’. But it has always been a very positive thing. 
Something I did for my own amusement. Or edification. It would not be until relatively recently that I would see its fantastic potential in reinitiation.
To know that, by reaching ‘out’ in that blind, groping, intuitive sense, that I really could, when lucky, bring down ‘fire from heaven’.” He continued,
“Much of my poetry is ‘writing poetry.’ i.e. bumbling along, putting sentences together, imitating, even if only sometimes subconsciously because it
was the last book of poetry I read, somebody else in their style, technique. But then, once in awhile, I start writing ‘as a poet’. The floodgates of
inspiration open. You are acting as the ‘hand & pen’ for some universe outside the span of time. And it is at times like that, that one must most 
beware, at least in my experience, of ‘tampering with the product’. And then will come those lines of initiatory experience that will tell you, rather
than you tell them. Or even ‘write’ them, for they are being written for you. To you thru you, as it were, from somebody else. Or at least from 
somewhere else. Much of my initiatory experience has come from ‘letting it flow,’ and then trying to understand it later, even if it didn’t seem to 
make much sense at the time. As the Greek poets used to say, ‘from the Gods’. And you wouldn’t believe how many times I have been absolutely
amazed as what I have ‘told’ myself, as it were, when thinking about it later. And then sometimes I have even told myself things that I have never
been able to understand even to this day."

This section will include actual scans of letters, along with historical data, which we feel might help individuals to appreciate and understand the legacy of Grady Louis McMurtry. 

THE CALIPH'S HEALTH
The Magickal Link Vol. V, No. 6 July 1985e.v. ... This issue caried a lengthy article titled The Caliph’s Health. It graphically described how Grady
 McMurtry was suffering from pulmonary edema, a condition in which the lungs become swollen with fluids, causing strain on the heart muscle and how
he was not expected to live much longer. The article also talked about the OTO and what would happen to the Order if and when Grady died. Behind the
scenes, the OTO Board Meetings were filled with comments and Resolutions regarding everyone’s plans about the continuity of the Order and electing
Grady’s successor. ... Then, on July 12, before most members of the OTO had even received their copy of the July issue of The Magickal Link, Grady
Louis McMurtry passed away. He was sixty-six years old.

The story behind THE THELEMA LODGE CHARTER   

THE MAGICKAL THESIS OF GRADY MCMURTRY 

GRADY McMURTRY'S TAROT NOTES    
"There are also pages upon pages of these hand written scribbled notes, showing Grady’s drawings and diagrams of his Angel & The Abyss cycle of
poetry in relationship to tarot and astrological attributions. Among these are his own designs for a tarot deck, but sadly these drawings are rudimentary,
extremely primitive and reveal little of his thinking process. In these notes he called his ambition, “A Tarot to accompany The Angel & The Abyss”, which
was meant to further elucidate his Thesis." ...  from IN THE NAME OF THE BEAST, A biography of Grady Louis McMurtry, disciple of Aleister
Edward Crowley, Volume Two – 1962 -1985, by J. Edward Cornelius.
