Of Boston. A small and obscure museum with high standing in scientific circles. It specializes in non-artistic remains of ancient and unknown civilisations. Located in Mt. Vernon Street, near Joy, in Beacon Hill district of Boston. Housed in a former private mansion designed by Buffinch and built in 1819. Includes a hall containing mummies from many cultures, including Eyptian, Aleutian Islands, Pompeii. Also the mummy of T'yog, from ancient Mu, acquired in 1878 by Curator Pickman. Sensational press coverage of the mummy in 1931-1932 resulted in attempts by cultists to revive mummy, and the dissection that uncovered a living, pulsing brain. [HPL Aeons 264, 266-267, 269]

Cats of the Waking World
Cats may have an unusual sensitivity to the supernatural. Thus, the cat "Nigger-Man" showed signs of alertness and anxiety shortly after moving into Exham Priory. The other cats in the household were affected similarly. When Delapore heard the sounds of rats in the walls, Nigger-Man reacted as if rodents were present in the room. [HPL Rats 32-40]
The town of Innsmouth was marked by a complete absence of cats and dogs [Innsmouth 326].
Cats of the Dreamlands
In Ulthar, according to an ancient and significant law, no man may kill a cat. The law arose after an incident involving an old cotter and his wife, who were fond of torturing and killing cats. After they killed a kitten belonging to dark wanderers from the South, one of the wanderers raised his arms to the sky and prayed in an unkown tongue. Thereafter, all the cats of Ulthar began circling the home of the cotter and his wife. When the villagers next looked in on the cotters, their bones had been picked clean of flesh. [Cats 55-58].
It was the priest Barzai who advised the burgesses of Ulthar to pass their law against killing cats. Barzai also told Atal where the black cats go on St. John's Eve. [Other 128]
Randolph Carter visited Ulthar about 300 years after this incident; for Atal, who had been a small boy when the law was passed, was fully three centuries old when Carter met him [Cats 58; Kadath 311].
The neighborhood of Ulthar is notable for the presence of many cats. The cats of Ulthar slew a party of zoogs that had followed Carter to the town, because one of the zoogs sought to eat a kitten. [Kadath 314] Later, Carter informed the cats of the zoogs' plans for revenge. The cats launched a pre-emptive strike, and secured the surrender of the zoogs, along with twelve young zoogs of noble families to keep as hostages, and an annual trible of grouse, quail, and pheasants. [345-347]
The cats of the dreamlands leap from rooftops up into the sky at night and visit the dark side of the moon [314, 322]. When Carter was held prisoner on the moon's dark side by the moon-things, an army of cats rescued him and slew his captors. Carter was able to converse with them in the soft language of cats. [322-324] The old cat-general of Ulthar taught Carter passwords and introductions he could use when meeting other cats .
The only enemy feared by earth's cats are the very large and peculiar cats from Saturn, who are allied to the moon-things. 
In Thran, Carter spoke gravely to the venerable cat at the inn where he stayed . In Celephais, an old Maltese, the chief of Celephais' cats, told Carter much of the secret lore known to cats on the seaward slopes of Ooth-Nargai, and also told Carter where to find Kuranes [347-348, 353].
Cats avoid Inganok, and the ships that go there, because Inganok holds shadows that no cat can endure, and a brooding hint of outer space which cats do not like . The men of Inganok are sorry that no cats will stay there, and blame it on the hidden nearness of Leng .

The Great Library
There is a library on Celaeno [AWD Island 197-198]. It is not clear how a library could be located "on" a star. It is possible that Laban Shrewsbury and his companions used the term "Celaeno" as a shorthand for a planet that orbits Celaeno.
The library on Celeano is of carved granite, with columns and tables of colossal size. The shelves hold gigantic books with hieroglyphs on their spines. The walls are made of rows of stacked blocks that are convex on top and concave on the bottom. Carvings appear on the walls. [AWD Gorge description (118)]
The hieroglyphs and books there were stolen from the Elder Gods by the Great Old Ones. Some were stolen at the time of their revolt from the Elder Gods, while others were stolen later on. [AWD Curwen 43; Sky 69]
Laban Shrewsbury, Andrew Phelan, Abel Keane, Claiborne Boyd, and Nayland Colum all spent periods of time in exile on Celaeno. Shrewsbury spent a full twenty years there after his initial disappearance. [AWD Curwen 43; Gorge (118); Island 197-198 ; Keeper 144, 160; Sky 54, 67]
To travel to Celaeno, Shrewsbury and his companions first drank a special golden mead and recited an invocation to Hastur. This summoned the bat-winged byakhee, who transported them to the Nameless City in Arabia. There, they left their bodies in hibernation while their astral selves traveled to Celaeno. It is not clear how their astral selves were transported to Celaeno, though this may also have involved using the byakhee. [AWD Curwen 44; Sky 86, 93]
Hastur and the Hyades
Claiborne Boyd and Abel Keane each mistakenly believed that Celaeno is in the Hyades, which is another star cluster in the constellation Taurus. Boyd jumped to this conclusion after reading a reference to a dark star in the Hyades in the R'lyeh Text ; since Boyd had recently heard of Celaeno, he made the leap of connecting the two. [AWD Sky 59] Abel Keane had a vision of Laban Shrewsbury, in which he was supposedly told that Celaeno is "a place far removed from our universe—Celaeno in the Hyades" [AWD Gorge 132]. This lapse can perhaps be explained if you suppose that Shrewsbury referred to Celaeno and the Pleiades as being somehow related to the Hyades, which is the realm of Hastur. Together with the use of Hastur's byakhee for transport, these factors seem to imply that Celaeno is controlled by servants of Hastur.
Presumably it was these followers of Hastur who tortured Shrewsbury when he first arrived on Celaeno, because he did not have a star-stone for protection [AWD Curwen 44].
A book that is sometimes found in the libraries of occultists. From the title, it may have some connection to the library on Celaeno. See: Celaeno.
Laban Shrewsbury said that the Celaeno Fragments was one of the sources of the Cthulhu Mythos [AWD Island 180].
Shrewsbury had a sealed folio of the Celaeno Fragments which he sent Andrew Phelan to donate to the Miskatonic University Library [AWD Curwen 41]. Later, Abel Keane saw Shrewsbury's folio of the Celaeno Fragments at Miskatonic University library, but did not have time to open it [AWD Sky 59].
Claiborne Boyd found passages from the Celaeno Fragments among the papers of Asaph Gilman [AWD Gorge 109] Prof. Vibarro Andros loaned Claiborne Boyd a transcript of the Celaeno Fragments [AWD Gorge 126].
The Gable Window narrator found a copy in the house of his late cousin, Wilbur Akeley [AWD Gable 206].
Winfield Phillips borrowed either an original copy or a photostat from Prof. Seneca Lapham. It probably was borrowed or copied from the Miskatonic University library. [AWD Lurker 134]
Amos Piper consulted a copy while possessed by a member of the Great Race [AWD Space 234]

The elephant-headed god of the desert plateau of Tsang [FBL Hills 242, 247]. Its cave was guarded day and night by hideous yellow abnormalities: subhuman worshippers without faces [243, 248]. Its guardians often disappeared during the night, leaving only their clothes, with certain ghastly traces .
Chaugnar has a chubby, anthropoid body and an elephant-like head. The ears are webbed and tentacled, and the trunk ends in a large flat disk. It sits upright with hands folded on its lap, exuding a Buddha-like calm together with the malignancy of a gorgon. [244-245] It has stumpy legs and leaves phosphorescent tracks .
From its stillness and stone-like material, it appears to be a statue, but it awakens to drink the blood of its devotees. [244-245] Without blood to feast on, Chaugnar suffers torments that no man could endure .
Thousands of years ago, when Chaugnar dwelt in a cave in the Pyrenees, he created a race of small, dark, human-like beings to serve him . Chaugnar sent its servants forth to collect youths and maidens, who were preserved in spices and stored in the cave until Chaugnar had need of them. 
Chaugnar had brothers who also lived in the Pyrenees. Chaugnar and they conversed by means of thought-transference. After the arrival of the Roman legions, Chaugnar decided to move to Asia, but his brothers decided to remain. Then Chaugnar cursed his brothers, proclaiming that when the time frames are dissolved, he alone will arise to glory, and he will consume his brothers. 
In modern times, the high priest Chung Ga said that Chaugnar's brothers would destroy Clark Ulman if he attempted to dispose of the god. This makes it sounds like Chaugnar's brothers are still allied to him in some way .
Roger Little speculated that Chaugnar and its brothers are incarnate manifestations of a single hyperdimensional entity or principal .
The Prophecy of Mu Sang
After deciding to leave the Pyrenees, Chaugnar called for servants and had them carry him to the plateau of Tsang. He caused the prophet Mu Sang to be born from the womb of an ape. Mu Sang prophecied that someday Chaugnar would be carried forth into the world by the White Acoloyte, and that It would devour all things, even its own Brothers, and fill space with its Oneness. [246-248, 255-256]
In modern times, Clark Ulman persuaded Chung Ga that he was the White Acolyte of the prophecy who would carry Chaugnar forth into the world. Chaugnar fed on Ulman's blood during the trip to America, causing Ulman to become terribly disfigured. [248-252] After Ulman died, a loathsome greenish trunk on his face continued to wave about for hours .
Escape from New York
Chaugnar was placed on display in the Manhattan Museum of Fine Arts [240, 265]. Chaugnar killed a museum guard named Cinney during the night, leaving him blackened and shrunken, with his face eaten off [266-268]. Later, Chaugnar disappeared from the museum . Shortly after, several violent deaths were reported in midtown Manhattan . Then Chaugnar proceeded to the Jersey coast and perpetrated a massacre near Asbury Park . Roger Little, Henry Imbert, and Algernon Harris pursued Chaugnar along the Jersey shoreline and destroyed him with an entropy-reversing beam, which reduced Chaugnar to the slime from which he was originally formed [308-313]. Thus the prophecy of Mu Sang was thwarted.
Rampage in the Pyrenees
Shortly after Chaugnar's arrival in New York, his brothers in the Pyrenees emerged and massacred fifteen peasants, leaving their bodies drained of blood . The Brooklyn Standard rushed out a sensational morning extra to report it . When Chaugnar perished, his brothers did also, leaving pools of black slime in the snow [314-315].
According to Chung Ga, Chaugnar is a great god, utterly cosmic and unanthropormophic, with no regard for our ideas of good and evil. "Before it incarnated itself in time, it contained within itself the past, the present, and the future." 
According to Roger Little, Chaugnar and its brothers are incarnate manifestations of a single hyperdimensional entity or principal [296, 315]. Little believed that Chaugnar is not truly a god, but a limited being, the spawn of remote worlds and unholy dimensions .
In the poem When Chaugnar Wakes, Chaugnar Faugn is said to live on a planet beyond the edge of space, within a glowing cone. It drinks dark nurture through its ropy arms from lava-pools. Its face is marked by hate and fury. When Chaugnar wakes, it will venture forth to other stars and planets, including perhaps Earth [FBL Chaugnar 49-50]. Possibly the poem is describing a scene from the distant past, before Chaugnar first came here.
Rogers' Museum included a figure of proboscidian Chaugnar Faugn [HPL Museum 216].

An alien being, said to be the priest of the Great Old Ones [HPL Call 139]. Cthulhu preserved the Great Old Ones with spells, so they can survive until the stars are "right" again .
Cthulhu is of vaguely anthropoid outline, with a scaly, rubbery-looking, green, sticky, bloated body. The head is octopus-like, the face covered with tentacles or feelers. There are prodigious claws on the hind and fore feet. Two long, thin, rudimentary wings rise behind [127, 134, 152]. In a dream, Cthulhu appeared to be "miles high"  and was later compared to a "mountain" in size . It is not clear whether Cthulhu resembles the other Great Old Ones, for "none might say whether the others were precisely like him" .
Deathless Chinamen and Naked Savages
The Great Old Ones have the ability to communicate telepathically with humans, and in ancient times inspired a cult of human worshippers by revealing the location of various small carved idols that had been brought from the stars [139-140]. But this communication ended when R'lyeh sank beneath the ocean, for thought cannot pass through the deep waters . The cult exists hidden in distant wastes and dark places all over the world . The cult has been observed among a singular tribe of Esquimaux on the West Greenland coast  as well as among a mob of mix-blooded West Indians, mulattos and negros in a swamp south of New Orleans . There are undying leaders of the cult in the mountains of China . When the stars come right again, the secret priests of the cult will take Cthulhu from His tomb to revive His subjects and resume His rule of Earth .
The most detailed account of the cult worship comes from Inspector Legrasse, who raided a ritual in a Louisiana swamp on November 1, 1907. Naked worshippers danced counterclockwise in a circle around a bonfire with a pillar surmounted by a small carving of Cthulhu . The cultists erected ten scaffolds where they hung victims head down ; the victims were slain by Black Winged Ones from a haunted wood . The ritual may also have been witnessed by a monstrous white bulk with shining eyes in the distance .
A Brief Resurgence
In the spring of 1925, there was a brief period of increased psychic influence on the part of Cthulhu or the Great Old Ones generally:
Among the events in this period, it is not at all clear why R'lyeh rose or sank again; whether through random geologic processes, or because the stars were nearly "right," or as a result of ritual activities on the part of the cultists. Also, given that R'lyeh sank again, it is not explained why Cthulhu went down with it, since he had already escaped from His lair and shown His ability to swim.
Abdul Alhazred was a worshipper of both Cthulhu and Yog-Sothoth [History 51]. Alhazred wrote that Cthulhu is a cousin of those "Old Ones" associated with Yog-Sothoth, but can spy them only dimly [Dunwich 170]. The Necronomicon hints of the Cthulhu and Yog-Sothoth myth cycles, which antedate the coming of man to the earth Prehuman [Whisperer 219]. Cthulhu seeped down from the stars when the earth was still half-formed [Mound115].
There seems to be a strong alliance between Cthulhu and the Deep Ones. Thus, while discussing the beliefs of the Esoteric Order of Dagon at Innsmouth, Zadok Allen quoted the invocation to Cthulhu: Ph'nglui mglw'nafh , etc. [Innsmouth 337]. The Innsmouth narrator dreamed that the Deep Ones will someday rise again to give the tribute Cthulhu craves . As he contemplated his change into a Deep One, the Innsmouth narrator wrote praises to Cthulhu and R'lyeh .
The Outer Ones were also linked to Cthulhu. Folklore researcher Henry Akeley wrote of Cthulhu in a letter to Wilmarth [Whisperer 223]. Cthulhu was among the entities praised during a May-Eve ritual in a Vermont cave, performed by an Outer One and a human . The being impersonating Henry Akeley said that the Outer Ones arrived on Earth long before the fabulous epoch of Cthulhu was over, and remember R'lyeh when it was above the waters . This being also told Wilmarth from whence Cthulhu first came .
The Children of Tulu
The Old Ones of K'n-yan worshipped an octopoid being named Tulu; the Mound narrator identified this being with folklore of monstrous and unmentioned Cthulhu, who seeped down from the stars while the earth was still half-formed [Mound114]. Heaton referred to the Old Ones as the children of Tulu . Capt. George Lawton babbled of Great Tulu after visiting K'n-yan . Grey Eagle's protective talisman included a design of a kind of octopoid monster . Charging Buffalo said that the Old Ones worshipped Yig and Tulu . Inside the passageway leading to K'n-yan, Zamacona observed carvings of Yig and Tulu . Zamacona stumbled on a temple with a statue of an octopus-headed abnormality [126-128]; the temples of Cthulhu were the most richly constructed objects in all K'n-yan . These temples were surrounded by embowering groves . Zamacona watched the subtle orgiastic rites at such temples with fascinated repulsion .
The Old Ones of K'n-yan traditionally believed that Tulu first brought them to this planet, along with the Tulu metal . By Zamacona's time, the Old Ones were not sure of the historical truth of these legends, but still referenced Tulu for aesthetic reasons [131, 136]. Great Tulu was regarded as a spirit of universal harmony . The Old Ones believed that the wrath of space-devils had lead to the submergence of the gods, including Tulu .
Zamacona's dreams of the abyss of N'kai shocked the leaders of Yig and Tulu worship . Zamacona observed statues to Yig and Tulu in a tunnel leading up to the outer world ; later, the Mound narrator also viewed them [160, 162-163].
Megalithic ruins in Uganda were said to have been an outpost of the evil god Clulu [HPL Winged 247].
Rogers Museum included a statue of many-tentacled Cthulhu [Museum 216]. Stephen Jones fancied that the long facial tentacles of the Cthulhu statue seemed to sway .
Marceline Bedard played a part in a frightful secret from the days of Cthulhu and the Elder Ones [Medusa187].
The specimens of the crinoid Old Ones of Antarctica reminded Lake of folkloric things spoken of by Wilmarth, such as Cthulhu cult appendages [Mountains 22]. The city of the Old Ones reminded Dyer of primal myths such as the Cthulhu cult .

AWD OutThere One of Geoffrey Malvern's friends found parallels to occult truth "in the fiction of certain British and American writers."
A land race of beings shaped like octopi, who filtered down to earth from remote gulfs of interstellar space. They were composed of matter widely different from what we know, and were able to undergo transformations and reintegrations. They fought a monstrous war against the crinoid Old Ones who were already present on earth. Eventually peace was made; the Cthulhu spawn retained the lands recently risen from the South Pacific, while the remains of their Antarctic cities were obliterated by the Old Ones. This Pacific landmass included the city of R'lyeh, and it was the Cthulhu spawn who brought the R'lyehian language to earth [HPL Gates 452]. Later, the lands of the Pacific suddenly sank, and obliterated all the Cthulhu spawn. [Mountains 66, 68].
The Cthulhu spawn should not be confused with the Deep Ones, another race with links to Cthulhu; for the Deep Ones have fishlike and froglike attributes rather than being octopoid, and live underwater, unlike the Cthulhu spawn who were land dwellers.
On the other hand, the Cthulhu spawn might be the same as the Great Old Ones, whose appearance is not known, and who lie in R'lyeh, protected and yet also trapped by Cthulhu's protective spells. See: Great Old Ones.
