Skull and Bones raided native graves

According to Yale's alumni magazine, Prescott Bush along with other members of the Skull & Bones secret society, desecrated a grave thought to be that of the Apache leader Geronimo and stole his skull. A 1918 letter discovered in Yale archives lends credence to long-held rumors that Skull and Bones members broke into the grave. It reads, in part:
The skull of the worthy Geronimo the Terrible, exhumed from its tomb at Fort Sill by your club & the K -- t [Knight] Haffner, is now safe inside the T -- [Tomb] together with his well worn femurs[,] bit & saddle horn.
