The Mayan Order (Mayanry) is (or was) a Texas-based group, originally founded in the late 1930s by William Perry Taylor, a.k.a. Koran, and Isabelle Taylor, a.k.a. Rose Dawn, which professed itself to be a secret order based "on the traditional wisdom of that mysterious race of astrologers and temple builders, the ancient Mayans of Mexico and Central Mexico."[1] Rose Dawn was the voice - via shows on John R. Brinkley's XERA "border blaster" radio in Del Rio - and face of Mayanry, being the Official Scribe and Patroness of the Order, and eventually the Supreme Leader after her husband "Koran" Taylor's death in 1953.
