Society of Osiris Magicians
It came about after Worthington, Louis E. Shilling and Charles Ziegler became disenchanted with the magic clubs of Baltimore, including the Demons Club , for admitting too many non-magicians. The Society created rigid rules to ensure only "magicians" would be accepted. Worthington, good friend, Howard Thurston, even thought the test was too hard. The first members included Herbert A. Davis, Louis V. Lane, Howard S. Jefferson, Frank M. Chapman, Walter B. Swindell Jr., C. P. Hammond, and J. Paul Heese.
The officer's titles were derived from the ancient Egyptian Rites of Magic.
Their early reports were published in the Sphinx. Al Snyder and Louis V. Lane published the Osirian for the organization out Charleston, West Virginia chapter (which as formed in 1924). It only lasted for 6 issues. Later, Worthington then started the Tablets of Osiris, which he published from 1929 until 1943.
