[ADDRESS BLOCK BLACKED OUT]
Dear Mr. [BLACKED OUT]
Your letter of June 29th and enclosures have been received.
Although I appreciate your interest in contacting this Bureau, based on
the material you forwarded, there has been no violation of Federal law
coming within the investigative jurisdiction of the FBI. Your enclosures
are being returned.
John Edgar Hoover
NOTE: Correspondent is not identifiable in Bufiles. He forwarded fourteen
bits of literature disseminated by Ron Hubbard's Dianetic Research
Foundation, Inc., now called Scientology, 1812 19th Street, Northwest,
Washington, D.C. 20009, which has been known to the Bureau since 1951.
(See NOTE next page)
This is an alleged science which supposedly instills self-confidence and
assists individuals in removing mental problems and obtaining human
ability. His wife, suing him for divorce in 1951, described him as being
hopelessly insane and the Washington Times-Herald stated that "competent
medical advisors recommended that Hubbard be committed to a private
sanitarium for psychiatric observation and treatment of a paranoid
schizophrenia." Copies of correspondent's enclosures are not necessary
for retention in Bufiles.
