While this is not an Electoral College communication, the College extends its condolences to the Anderson family. Br Henry is already greatly missed.
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
Many of you have shared with me the privilege of knowing Henry Anderson of Chicago. Henry was one of the first O.T.O. members I ever met; I’m pretty sure he was present the first time I attended a Kollegium 93 Camp meeting in 1991. He was the co-proprietor of the Chicago Thelemic Temple in support of multiple chartered O.T.O. bodies in Chicago, and he was the third Master of Aum. Ha. Camp, presiding over its growth into the Second City’s first Lodge. He was a diligent, mischievous, creative, and caring man who was a cornerstone of O.T.O. in Chicago, and well-known and loved by brethren across the country.
He was a graphic artist with a canny sense of humor and iconography. His creative impulses found their outlets in multiple businesses, notably the Urban Tea Lounge and Not-for-Prophet Industries. Recently, he was on the verge of a new independent enterprise rooted in his body-piercing career, but that effort was interrupted.
Henry had a heart attack on September 17th, and did not regain consciousness during his two weeks of hospitalization. This morning he left the weight of incarnation behind to pursue work not known to us. He is survived by his wife CeCe, three children, a grandchild, and an uncountable number of friends, collaborators, and admirers.

I give unimaginable joys on earth: certainty, not faith, while in life, upon death; peace unutterable, rest, ecstasy; nor do I demand aught in sacrifice. (CCXX I:58)
Love is the law, love under will.
