As we have already seen, certain families from the area around Boston, whose wealth came primarily from trading in slaves and in the drug opium in the 18th and 19th centuries, tried to hide the taint of dirty money by donating huge sums of it to Harvard College, resulting in their control of the board of trustees from the early 1800s.  The charter of the Harvard Corporation also gave these board members  the authority to choose  successors to replace members of the board who died or resigned, so that their long-practiced habit of laundering drug money through the university system survives until the present day.

Interestingly, it was the same families who were involved in setting up an endowment at Yale College.   Elihu Yale was born near Boston, educated in London, and served with the British East India Company, eventually becoming governor of Fort Saint George, Madras, in 1687. He amassed a great fortune from trade and returned from India to England in 1699. Yale became known as quite a philanthropist; upon receiving a request from the Collegiate School in Connecticut, he sent a donation and a gift of books. After subsequent bequests, Cotton Mather suggested the school be named Yale College, in 1718. [See Kris Millegan's article, "The Order of Skull and Bones" at ]

In 1823, Samuel Russell established Russell & Company for the purpose of acquiring opium in Turkey and smuggling it to China.  Forced out of the lucrative African slave trade by U.S. law and Caribbean slave revolts, leaders of the Cabot, Lowell, Higginson, Forbes, Cushing and Sturgis families had married Perkins siblings and children. The Perkins opium syndicate made the fortune and established the power of these families. By the 1830s, the Russells had bought out the Perkins syndicate and made Connecticut the primary center of the U.S. opium racket. Massachusetts
families (Coolidge, Sturgis, Forbes and Delano) joined Connecticut (Alsop)
and New York (Low) smuggler-millionaires under the Russell auspices.

There is a long list of names of the great American and European fortunes which were built on the "China"(opium) trade:

*Augustine Heard (1785-1868): ship captain and pioneer U.S. opium smuggler.
*John Cleve Green (1800-75): married to Sarah Griswold; gave a fortune in opium profits to Princeton University, financing three Princeton buildings and four professorships; trustee of the Princeton Theological Seminary for 25 years.
*Abiel Abbott Low (1811-93): his opium fortune financed the construction of the Columbia University New York City campus; father of Columbia's president Seth Low.
*John Murray Forbes (1813-98): his opium millions financed the career of author Ralph Waldo Emerson, who married Forbes's daughter, and bankrolled the establishment of the Bell Telephone Company, whose first president was Forbes' son.
*Joseph Coolidge: his Augustine Heard agency got $10 million yearly as surrogates for the Scottish dope-runners Jardine Matheson during the fighting in China; his son organized the United Fruit Company; his grandson, Archibald Cary Coolidge, was the founding executive officer of the Anglo-Americans' Council on Foreign Relations.
*Warren Delano, Jr.: chief of Russell and Co. in Canton; grandfather of U.S.
President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
*Russell Sturgis: his grandson by the same name was chairman of the Baring Bank in England, financiers of the Far East opium trade.


It seems a plan was devised early in U.S. history to take control of our centers of education in order to control how history was written.  By setting up endowments in the universities, they would be able to claim positions of influence on the boards, which would then give them the power to control those funds that they had donated and direct the investments thereof.  At the same time, they could control which historians were
appointed to the chairs they endowed and make sure their reputations were
free of the taint of the drug trade by which their fortunes were acquired.

William Huntington Russell studied in Germany from 1831-32, during a transition period in Germany's educational structure. Germany was adopting the philosophical ideas of Hegel who had built on the philosophy school of Immanuel Kant. To Hegel, our world is a world of reason. The state is Absolute Reason and the citizen can only become free by worship and obedience to the state. Both fascism and communism have their philosophical roots in the Hegellian philosophy in which William Russell was
indoctrinated during his  time in Germany.  This philosophy makes it possible for those who use the Hegellian dialetical process to manipulate society to be on both sides of any issue.  According to Hegel, it is the conflict of the ideas that brings about change.  The result of the conflict is to create a synthesis between the two extremes and leads closer to the final outcome of control by the forces seeking the ultimate power.

More aptly stated: Thesis (create the crisis) Anti-thesis (Offer the Solution) which is the basis of globalist elite manipulation paradigms. The synthesis achieved becomes a symptomatic response instead of addressing the real cause (Government). The World Order organizes and finances Jewish groups, anti-Jewish groups, Communist groups, anti-Communist groups, and other "opposing" social forces to create predetermined outcomes ensuring power  maintenance.

When Russell returned to Yale in 1832, he formed a senior society with Alphonso Taft (Yale '33). According to information acquired from a break-in to the "tomb" (the Skull and Bones meeting hall) in 1876, "Bones is a chapter of a corps in a German University.... General Russell, its founder, was in Germany before his Senior Year and formed a warm friendship with a leading member of a German society. He brought back with him to college, authority to found a chapter here." So class valedictorian William H. Russell, along with fourteen others, became the founding members of "The Order of Scull and Bones," later changed to "The Order of Skull and Bones".

In 1832 many of these founders of the Yale society were still closely connected in the opium business with their cousins at Harvard.  Because of the research done into George H.W. Bush's family background involving Yale and Skull and Bones, and also because of the presidential candidacy of his Skull and Bones member son, George W. Bush, much has been written in the last few years about Yale's control by this secret society.  But little research has been published about the connection between the Yale crew and their counterparts in the other Ivy League colleges.


Part One of this series left off with Robert Bennet Forbes, a partner in the firm of Russell and Company in 1840, the same year that a young man named Warren Delano would become a partner in the same firm.  The following is a brief summary of the Delano family, the maternal parentage of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and is extracted from an excerpt of "Before The Trumpet" by Geoffrey C. Ward, two chapters of which have been posted by Kris Millegan.  See them in full at:
88   and

The first American Delano was Philippe de la Noye, a Huguenot who arrived at Plymouth Colony in 1621. He came out of love, not religious zeal, hoping to marry Priscilla Mullens (the same Priscilla with whom Myles Standish and John Alden were later smitten). His dramatic arrival on her doorstep did him no good. She turned him down, and he did not marry for thirteen more years. When he did, he chose another Englishwoman, Hester Dewsbury, with whom he had several children. One of these, Jonathan Delano, married Mercy Warren, fought in King Philip's War, and was rewarded for his service with an 800-acre tract of land at New Bedford, Massachusetts, which then encompassed the coastal village of Fairhaven.

There his sons and their sons prospered as mariners and whalers and shipbuilders, and there Warren Delano II was born in 1809. His father, the first Warren, had begun his career at sea at nineteen, ferrying cargoes of corn and salt, bathwood and potatoes to New Orleans and Liverpool and the Canary Islands. Later he purchased interests in a number of fine ships, came to own several more, and was captured at sea and endured two grim weeks aboard a British prison ship after the War of 1812 had officially ended. He returned to Fairhaven in 1815, alive but "sick enough," he said. After that he built himself a great rambling house and settled into a lucrative if less
eventful life ashore as a whaling executive.

Young Warren was graduated from Fairhaven Academy at fifteen in 1824. Two years later, his father had him apprenticed as a junior clerk to Hathaway and Company, a Boston importer; later he worked for Goodhue and Company, one of the biggest import firms in New York, gaining what one business associate later called "a first rate mercantile education."

In 1833, he sailed for China at the age of twenty-four. At Canton he was offered a junior partnership in the new firm of Russell, Sturgis and Company of Boston and Manila. In 1840, at thirty-one, he would become a senior partner with Russell and Company, by then the largest American firm in the China trade. The object of every partner was to gain a "competence"-$100,000-before returning home. Warren Delano would earn at
least two, one with each of the trading companies he served.

All dealing in China was done through one of thirteen Chinese traders, who were held personally responsible for the actions of their foreign associates. This was sometimes a touchy business. Sailors reeling back to their ships from an evening in Hog Lane, the single narrow street of grog shops they were permitted to visit on shore leave, occasionally got into trouble, requiring their Chinese sponsors to pay stiff damages to the imperial viceroy. But it was worth the inconvenience. Houqua, the agent who handled business for most American firms (and has been said to have been the Chinese agent for the East India Company), became probably the wealthiest merchant on earth, said to have compiled a fortune of some $26 million by the year Warren Delano first came to know him.

The high points of the Canton social season for the Americans were the sumptuous banquets held at the home of Houqua on the midriver island of Honam. Houqua wore silk brocade robes and clattering ropes of jade and a silk cap with a bright blue button that denoted his special status. The bohea tea grown on the slopes of his family estate and shipped aboard American ships was said to be among the finest in the world and he was generous toward those who had made him rich.  A portrait of Houqua always
hung in the Delano parlor at Algonac. According to the Delano Family Papers, successive heads of the Wu family, who were important Chinese merchants in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, were called "Howqua" ("Houqua") by the foreigners who did business with them. The first usage appears to have arisen from a corruption of the given name of Wu Hao-kuan. See John King Fairbank, Trade and Diplomacy on the China Coast: The Opening of the Treaty Ports, 1842-1854 (2 vols., 1953).

The idyll was abruptly interrupted in 1838. Opium was the cause. Traffic in the drug was the dirty little secret of the China trade, almost universally practiced, almost never discussed. And as an increasingly important Canton trader, Warren Delano was deeply involved in it.  The British controlled the business; perhaps a third of their Chinese revenues came from the sale of opium, though its importation had been expressly forbidden by the emperor since 1729. Massive bribery of local officials made it possible; the drug's compactness and the almost insatiable demand for it among Chinese addicts made it spectacularly lucrative.

The Americans did their best to keep up with the British, but never came close to matching their earnings. Every American firm took part, with the lone exception of D. W. C. Olyphant and Company. Robert Bennet Forbes, Warren's friend and immediate predecessor as head of Russell and Company in Canton, had offered his justification for taking part in the trade: the best seafaring families of New England were involved in it, "those to whom I have always been accustomed to look up as exponents of all that was honorable in trade-the Perkins's, the Peabodys, the Russells and the Lows." There was a huge profit to be made. Others were enriching themselves; Warren Delano and
his fellow traders saw no reason not to get their share. Under Robert Forbes's energetic direction, Russell and Company became the third-most important single firm in the opium trade, British or American. As Forbes's successor as head of the company, Warren Delano improved upon his performance.

It was a matter of supply, not scruples then, that kept the Americans from doing even better. The British owned their own poppy fields in India. Their American competitors had to make do with opium bought in Turkey, or to sell the Indian drug on consignment for British or Indian firms. The Manchus were powerless to stop it, though they despaired over opium's impact on their subjects and worried at the drain the trade made on precious specie.  After two wars with the British over whether opium could be sold to Chinese citizens, the Chinese were thoroughly defeated and the ports were opened up to bring in the drug.  Warren Delano was in China during both wars.


Opium helped make Warren a wealthy man. Neither he nor his descendants were proud of that fact. He kept his business affairs to himself. Years later, one of his sons remembered "how strictly he complied with the admonition not to let his right hand know what his left hand was doing." In a family fond of retelling and embellishing even the mildest sort of ancestral adventures, no stories seem to have been handed down concerning Warren Delano's genuinely adventurous career in the opium business.

In 1843 Warren Delano returned to Massachusetts and during a visit at the home of his Canton friend John Murray Forbes at Northampton he met a Forbes cousin, Judge Joseph Lyman, who invited the Delanos to his home that evening. The Lymans, too, were members of a distinguished old  Massachusetts family, and their youngest daughter Catherine Robbins Lyman, would soon become the wife of Warren Delano.  On December 4, the newlyweds sailed for China aboard John Bennet Forbes's sleek new Paul Jones. With them went Warren's younger sister Deborah, who was called "Dora."

The Delanos stayed in China for three years. Warren continued to run Russell and Company, increasing both its profits and his own with each successive season. Toward the end of 1846 the Delanos returned to America to stay. Warren stayed busy investing his new fortune in a host of likely ventures-New York waterfront property, railroads, copper mines in Tennessee and Maryland, land and anthracite coal in Pennsylvania, where a mining town was named Delano in his honor. He never entirely abandoned the China trade, building and owning several clippers, and when gold was discovered in California it provided him with a whole new market for his cargoes. His ship, the Mint, built with Robert Forbes and the Swedish engineer John Ericsson, was the first American paddle steamer on the Sacramento River.

They first bought themselves a five-story Manhattan town house at 39 Lafayette Square, and their neighbors included Washington Irving; John Jacob Astor, now nearing eighty-four but still the wealthiest man in America; and Warren's younger brother Franklin, who had married Mr. Astor's granddaughter Laura Astor just two years earlier. He too had been in the shipping business but had recently "retired" at thirty-one to live off his wife's immense trust fund. While Warren had had to buy his house, Franklin's had been free, a token of the old man's fondness for his grand- daughter. William Backhouse Astor, Laura Delano's father, lived just across the

The family-Warren, Catherine, and their three children-moved to Algonac in 1852. With them came several servants and two unmarried relatives, Warren's sister Sarah and his brother Ned, now home from China and without much initiative of his own. Later that year, another boy was born and given the name, Warren III.  And there, two years later, on September 21, 1854, Sara Delano was born.

In the late summer of 1857, Algonac was nearly destroyed by an intrusion from the outside world which even Warren Delano could not keep out. Panic hit Wall Street, sparked by the abrupt failure of the giant Ohio Life Insurance and Trust Company, but further fueled by the legacy of years of wild over-speculation in railroads and real estate. Market prices were halved overnight; specie payment was suspended for a time; thousands of businesses closed over the next three years; hundreds of thousands of men were thrown out of work.  One by one, Warren Delano's investments soured.


In January 1860, Warren Delano was fifty and faced with bankruptcy after thirty years in business. He resolved at last to return to China, to Hong Kong this time, and re-enter the trade which had made him so rich so fast when he was young-tea and opium.[7]  By 1862, Warren Delano's fortunes had improved, not enough to permit him to come home, but enough for him to arrange passage on a clipper, the Surprise, and send for his family to join him at Hong Kong.  Algonac was leased to Warren's old Canton friend, Abbot Low.  At the time Warren left for China, Sara was pregnant with a ninth
child, and she would bear two more while in China.  In 1864 the children were returned to America.  William Forbes, a junior partner with Russell and company to whom Dora was now engaged, provided an escort.

By 1865 when the Civil War was over, Warren had restored his fortune but was unable to reunite the family at Algonac, on which Abbott Low's lease still had two years to run.  Sara's sister Dora married Will Forbes, and the two of them returned to China to continue the family's business.  The rest of the family went to Paris for a time, later to Dresden.  Sara's brother, Warren, was graduated from Harvard in 1874, hoping to travel west as a mining engineer. His father had other plans for him, however, and he went to work instead as superintendent of one of Warren Delano's enterprises, the
Union Mining Company, digging coal and shale from deposits near Mount Savage, Maryland, and making firebrick from the local clay. While still at Harvard he had met and fallen in love with Miss Jennie Walters of Baltimore, the sister of one of Warren's classmates.   Her father had organized the Atlantic Coast Railroad Line, made himself many times a millionaire, but would not agree to the marriage until 1875.

Sara was to remain single until the age of 26, when she became the second wife of James Roosevelt, who was many years her senior. After the wedding, the couple went to Europe, where Will and Dora Forbes, still taking care of the family's business in China, met them for three weeks in Rome.  Sara's uncle Franklin Delano, for whom her son would be named, met them in Geneva with his wife.  (Will and Dora Forbes would remain married until his death in 1896, when she married his brother Paul Forbes.  Although James had other children by his first wife, he and Sara were to give birth to only one child, Franklin.  James Roosevelt died in 1900, and it was largely due to
his mother's family contacts and fortune that he was able to finance his run for president a few years later.

While he was a student at Harvard, the president emeritus of the college was Abbott Lawrence Lowell.  At the age of 35 Franklin was elected to Harvard's Board of Overseers.  He returned for his twenty-fifth reunion in June 1929. His classmates had elected him chief marshal of Commencement. Harvard's Phi Beta Kappa chapter, to which Theodore Roosevelt had belonged, chose him as orator at the annual Literary Exercises, and made him an honorary member (along with his uncle Frederick Delano, A.B. 1885, twice an Overseer and later president of the Harvard Alumni Association).   Among FDR's backers was Joseph P. Kennedy (Harvard 1912), whose son, John Fitzgerald,  would follow his father to Harvard and later become the nation's thirty-fifth

Two days after Franklin Roosevelt's death in office on April 12, 1945, mourners jammed the Harvard Memorial Church for a service led by Willard Sperry, dean of the Divinity School. "We have lost one of our own members," said Sperry. "It would be presumptuous to say that elsewhere there is no sorrow like our sorrow. But our sorrow is touched with a humble and proper pride that this society was one of the shaping forces which fitted him for his duty and his destiny.

I wonder what the dean meant by that?    Did he mean that the Harvard Corporation supports those of its sons whose ill-gotten gains have been washed through its institution and that Harvard expects nothing in return except protection, power and prestige?  Surely he didn't mean that.

Note: re Harvard Charter:
On June 6, 1650, the Great and General Court of Massachusetts approved Harvard President Henry Dunster's charter of incorporation. The Charter of 1650 established the President and Fellows of Harvard College, a seven-member board that is the oldest corporation in the Western Hemisphere. It became a chartered university in 1780 and fully autonomous in 1865. Through the years Harvard has acquired a reputation for being one of the finest institutions of higher learning in the world. Among many notable alumni are the religious leaders Increase Mather and Cotton Mather; the
philosopher and psychologist William James; and men of letters such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, James Russel Lowell, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., Robert Frost, and T.S. Eliot. More U.S. presidents have attended Harvard than any other college: John Adams, John Quincy Adams, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and John F. Kennedy. A sixth, Rutherford B. Hayes, was a graduate of Harvard Law School, which also counts the jurists Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., and Felix Frankfurter among its alumni.

James Roosevelt, Franklin's father, received his ll.b. from Harvard Law School in 1851. Theodore Roosevelt enrolled in the College in 1877, FDR in 1900. Thereafter, Roosevelts came to Harvard in droves. In 1936, the tercentennial year, when FDR ran for a second term, nine Roosevelts were registered in the College, including three sets of brothers.  FDR's Harvard progeny included three of his four sons-James '30, Franklin Jr. '37, and John '38-as well as four grandsons and a great-grandson. Eleanor Roosevelt's brother Hall '13 and his two sons also went to Harvard. Several of FDR's Delano uncles and cousins, including his uncle Fred-class of 1885, twice an Overseer, and president of the Alumni Association in 1932-33-were Harvard men. Theodore Roosevelt, of the Oyster Bay branch, sent all four of his sons: Theodore '09, Kermit '12, Archibald '17, and Quentin '19. His daughters Alice and Ethel made it a clean sweep by marrying Harvard men (Senator Nicholas Longworth, A.B. 1891, and Dr. Richard Derby '03, who followed FDR on the Board of Overseers). Six of TR's grandsons, seven great-grandchildren, and a half dozen great-great-grandchildren have gone to
Harvard. Most of the 17 other Roosevelts on the alumni rolls were or are descendants
of TR's four uncles, and thus belong to the Oyster Bay branch. TR's sister Corinne Roosevelt Robinson had two Harvard sons and a Harvard grandson (the late columnist Joseph Alsop '32).

Note: Old China Trade
Jacques M. Downs, The Golden Ghetto: The American Commercial Community at
Canton and the Shaping of American China Policy, 1784-1844 (1997), is an excellent source of information on the Old China Trade at Canton and on the role opium played in the transformation of that system of doing business with the Chinese. See pp. 126-128 for the early involvement of Russell & Co. in the opium trade.
