  Llewellyn Encyclopedia: Ordo Templi Orientis
The year 1912 saw another major event in OTO history, for it was in this year that Reuss encountered Aleister Crowley and elevated him to the positions of Rex Supremus for Britain and Ireland.
In the English-speaking world, Crowley’s standing as OTO head was widely accepted, although by his death in 1947 the OTO under his jurisdiction consisted of one small lodge in Pasadena, California, which dissolved a few years later.
The existence and validity of these charters is a topic of endless and bitter dispute throughout the current OTO scene, though it is clear that McMurtry was in contact with Crowley during the Beast’s last years, and had some form of authority over the one American OTO lodge.

According to Crowley, O.T.O. is "the first of the great religious Societies to accept the Law." The rituals of O.T.O. have been entirely revised by Crowley and his successors in light of the Law of Thelema.
Within O.T.O., the process of initiation is unlike that of many college fraternities or the military, the goal of which is to bond the individual to the group by means of ego-collapse, often via methods of pain, exhaustion, and degredation.
One of the dramatic aspects of Ordo Templi Orientis is the continuing issue of legitimacy.

Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.) is incorporated in the State of California as a not-for-profit religious organization with tax exemption in California and the United States under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
O.T.O. includes a specifically liturgical arm which is called Ecclesia Gnostica Catholica (E.G.C.), the Gnostic Catholic Church, which was originally brought into relations with O.T.O. by Dr. Gerard Encausse (Papus) in 1908.
Members of O.T.O. in good standing are eligible for clerical ordination in E.G.C. Members of II° and higher (or even I°, in some situations) are eligible for ordination as Deacon, and those who have reached K.E.W. are eligible for ordination as Priest or Priestess.
