He asked the students this question: "Art thou, dwellers of the outer darkness where ignorance dwelleth, praying admittance into our sacred Temple to seek the Light of Initiation? The candidates nodded affirmatively responding: "Yes, we are". Then he said, "The Path to initiation is treacherous and filled with trials and temptation.

The museum, the only one in the world of authentic Egyptian design, including the Cairo Museum, grew from the private collection of Dr. H. Spencer Lewis, executive director for the Rosicrucian Order in the early thirties.By 1966 the collection had grown considerably and the modern building was opened to the public.Since then, the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum has become San Jose's most popular tourist attraction, boasting over 300,000 visitors annually.
FUDOSI

Meanwhile, H. Spencer Lewis of A.M.O.R.C. was in contact with a Freemason from Salt Lake City (Utah) , called McBlain Thomson, who was one of the organizers (together with Reuss) of the Zuerich Congress of July, 1920.
...
Harvey Spencer Lewis was intrigued by the informations communicated to him about all this*.In order to lend (R+C-) credibility to the AMORC -organisation, Lewis was in search of traditional Rosicrucian Orders." He wanted to contact Theodor Reuss to know more about it.Though he did not appreciate much of McBlain Thomson, he had to resolve himself to write to him so as to be able to contact Theodor Reuss*."Reuss waited for six months before answering the letter. (Lewis used Thomson's name as a reference.
...
As one can imagine, Lewis showed a lot of in interest in the assertions made by Reuss.
...
Lewis started to build up a relationship with Reuss.
...
Then, he sent a diploma to Lewis.This document is a 'gage of amity' ( a token of friendship ) between O.T.O. and A.M.O.R.C.
( Lewis was 'made' an 'O.T.O. VII° Grand Councillor of the Mystical Templars').
...
Concerning the collaboration with Aleister Crowley, Reuss expelled Crowley in 1921 : ' In October 1921, Reuss to Spencer Lewis: "I have cut off the connection that existed between us [Reuss und Crowley] regarding O.T.O., and whatever Crowley would happen to do about in the USA, it is now his own business, and not anymore a concern for the O.T.O." (Koenig :"Consider the O.T.O.non existent" http://www.cyberlink.ch/~koenig/consider.htm.)
...
But , as already mentioned before, Lewis had already lost interest in Reuss and his plans for the collaboration with Reuss' ORDO TEMPLI ORIENTIS.
...
Theodor Reuss is furious and still writes some letters to H.Spencer Lewis between november and april, to which Lewis will answer one letter, dating may 20th 1922, to state that no A.M.O.R.C. member will attend the Pilgrimage organized by Reuss.
...
Strangely enough, in the thirties Lewis refers to Reuss as an important European relation to A.M.O.R.C.
...
The reference can be found in a book ( LIBER D / Whitebook series ) written by Lewis , published in 1935, called "A U D I A L T E R A M
P A R T E M " ("Hear the other side").
"Audi Alteram Partem" was written "as a required defence to some heavy attacks on AMORC and its Imperator, raised by an eclectic band of self-appointed enemies ( mainly Reuben Swinburne Clymer of "FRATERNITAS ROSAE CRUCIS', the other "self proclaimed heir to the 'american Rosicrucian -throne" beside H.S. Lewis ). After a series of trials and public battles , Lewis eventually published the book in question, in order " to catch up with some of the endless accusations " stated by Clymer.
...
What's really strange is that Lewis makes no mention of the Orders involved with the FUDOSI, which was constituted one year earlier, in 1934 !
Anyway, after the unsuccessive 'adventure' with T.A.W.U.C. Lewis is still interesting in a possible collaboration with 'the Rosicrucians' of Europe, mainly to lend credibility to his own Order, A.M.O.R.C. ( writer's opinion).In this period A.M.O.R.C. was constantly under attack, as mentioned before.Therefore Harvey Spencer Lewis and his son, Ralph M. Lewis, started to "tour"' the United States extensively in the twenties and in the thirties.
...
Harvey Spencer Lewis , as mentioned before, as a 'Honorary member.., for Switzerland, Germany and Austria' contacted the 'Grandmaster' for the German O.T.O. , Heinrich Traenker.
...
"The FAMA" revealed the ' presence ' of the REAL Rosicrucian brethren ( Guess who ..). However, the collaboration between AMORC and The PANSOPHIC Movement of Traenker turned out to be a disillusion for Lewis.
...
Lewis suspected Traenker to be a fraud.
...
In 1933 Lewis ridiculed the whole matter" . In a letter to M.Carl, dating 1934/ 02/ 16 , Lewis made the following statements concerning 'Pansophia' : "The real 'chief' of the O.T.O. and of " The ORIENTAL PANSOPHIA' was Theodor Reuss "( ?? ). And : "The term PANSOPHIA is referred to as a division of the Rosicrucian studies and work and not as a separate school or a separate organisation" (Lewis to M. Carl, letter of 16.2.34.
...

...
Around the time of the 'AMORC-PANSOPHIA collaboration' (1930 - 1931) Harvey Spencer Lewis contacted Jean Mallinger, loyal friend and disciple of Emile Dantinne.
...
The correspondence between Lewis and Mallinger would eventually discharge into the establishment of the F.U.D.O.S.I. …….
...
It is not entirely clear to me how Lewis knew Mallinger.
...
It is known that H.S. Lewis corresponded intensively with fr. Wittemans (writer of 'a New & Authentic History of the Rosicrucians' ) in the beginning of the 1920's (see Addendum 4, note 3 ), Wittemans joined the FUDOSI in 1934 and knew both Mallinger and Dantinne long before the FUDOSI was founded.
...
Anyway, after Mallinger, in the year 1932 EMILE DANTINNE started to correspond with Harvey Spencer Lewis.
...
In 1933 Lewis received a grade of 'L'UNIVERSITE de la ROSE+CROIX' Belgium., the grade of "Doctor in Psychological and Hermetic Sciences".He also received the exalted title 'SAR'. *
...
Together with Blanchard and Lewis (through Mallinger), Dantinne started the preparations for the foundation of FUDOSI.
...
Most of the sources state, beyond dispute, that Dantinne was the great inspirer of the F.U.D.O.S.I., although , there are sources which indicate that Mallinger and Lewis (and what about Armand Rombauts ?) were the 'driving forces' behind the scenes (2).
...
course, let us not forget Blanchard and H. Spencer Lewis and "his"

H.S. Lewis played an important role in the whole story, as we will see in another chapter.

The symbol of the F.U.D.O.S.I. was created by H.S. Lewis.The meaning of the symbol will be explained later.
The following Orders and societies were represented on the first convention :
...
In this part of the history the contact between Jean Mallinger and Spencer Lewis was established.
...
Officially it is stated that a Belgian historian, Francois Wittemans(3), had advised Mallinger to contact Spencer Lewis.
...
On January 11, 1933 Jean Mallinger wrote a letter to Lewis about a possible collaboration between A.M.O.R.C. and the Belgian Orders.
...
According to the F.U.D.O.S.I. this would be a "Rosicrucian Renewal", carried out by the First Imperator of the Rosicrucian Order, Harvey Spencer Lewis.
...
According to Spencer Lewis in an article called "True Mysticism" the Rosicrucians were descendants of the Essenes, which "created"and conserved the original Christian Mysteries, assisted by the adepts of the Great White Brotherhood and (later on) the Templars.
...
Of special interest is the opinion of Chevillon about Dr.H.S. Lewis and the F.U.D.O.S.I. I've translated a few excerpts of the document :
FROM THE ORDER M:.A.y.P. of MEMPHIS-MISRAIM FRANCE
...
Spencer Lewis was initiated in Germany in 1921 (5) in the 95th Degree by Reuss-Peregrinus.Spencer Lewis claimed to be the Grand Master of the Great White Brotherhood of Tibet under the name of SRI- SOBBHITA- BIKKHU.Lewis gave Rombauts the title of Great Hierophant (99th Degree) under the name of OR-ZAM.
...
Because of the "Tradition" , proclaimed by the Order , Lewis was "authorized" through the International Secretary to 'charter' the initiations of the Order.The Charter was declared as the "Urbi et Orbi" of
Alchemical Transmutation

The second part contains a healing visualization where the audience is taken to the mystical experience in the tent witnessed by seventy two AMORC members during the 1929 historical trip to Egypt with Dr. H. Spencer Lewis.
...
After breakfast in our hotel in Cairo and when ready to aboard the cars that would take us about the city, Dr. Lewis was approached by the chief guide in Northern Egypt dressed in an official costume of a Sheik. He was in charge of over six thousand Arab tribesmen in the Egyptian desert and possessed thirty-five large tents out in the desert where we hoped to camp for mystical experiences. He was also a member of the Order affiliated with Akhnaton Lodge in Egypt. Initially he toured us through various places of interest in Cairo.
...
Stepping to the center of the tent Dr. Lewis announced that the midnight hour had come and it was time for the next stage in our initiatory process. Only those members allowed to participate in the initiation ceremony were permitted to remain in the tent. The Imperator also arranged to have the group of temple musicians play outside the tent at a distance so the music would come soft to ambient the ceremony but to not interfere with it. He asked to remove all the lamps from the tent and to extinguish all outside lamps. This left us in complete darkness and in a moonless Egyptian desert, that was quite dark! He asked us to sit in absolute silence, then invoked the presence of ascended masters members of the Great White Brotherhood using an ancient method chanted in rhythm with the music coming from outside. As his chanting continued the vibrations in the tent increased making us tremble and intensifying our auras. The aura of the Imperator of an intense Violet Light became so brilliant that actually illumined the tent for all of us to see each other even the ones in the opposite side.
Dr. Lewis stepped then to one corner of the tent.
