Re: A Letter from Dr. Hubbard to FBI
[08 Sep 1997]

I am a firm believer that no one better demonstrates the mind of L. Ron Hubbard than L. Ron Hubbard. The following letter is an example.

I am a firm believer that no one better demonstrates the mind of L. Ron
Hubbard than L. Ron Hubbard. The following letter is an example. It is a
letter posted by RonIsXenu (thank you, RIX) that is also revered by the
drones of Dept 20. They comb these sorts of letters for clues to the
"conspiracy" that Hubbard claimed. But the rest of us can simply enjoy
them as showing the mind of Hubbard - back in 1955, no less!

The only problem is that they have locked up/sealed the BEST letters that
REALLY show Hubbard's mind and the reason they sealed them is because they
DO show Hubbard's mind.

Enjoy this.

: Md. Sept. 7, 1955 TO:

: Communist Activities

: Gentlemen:

: A series of sudden insanities and disturbances in Dianetic and
: Scientology groups reached seven last week on the West Coast.

: In Atomic Energy's Richland, Washington, a young boy who had never
: been treated with Dianetics or Scientology but whose father Verne
: McAdams is the local Scientology group leader in Richland suddenly and
: mysteriously became insane, so suddenly and so thoroughly that the
: head of the institution for insane in Richland, evidently of good
: security, suspects the use of LSD, the insanity producing drug so
: favored by the APA. Two of our ministers in that area at my request
: went further into the situation and by means we will not detail
: recovered from the boy information of which his family had been
: entirely ignorant. On instructions to find the "other psychiatrist"
: our ministers by this means located an unsuspected one in Atomic
: Energy's front yard, a man who had been the construction company
: doctor during the building of Richland and who had then turned
: psychiatrist and whose name strangely enough is Menkowski (sp?). The
: boy had evidently had some association with this man before this
: sudden onset.

: With this information not yet cool long distance from San Francisco,
: Bay Area notified us of the sudden and inexplicable descent into
: insanity of one Wanda Collins. She is ravingly ihsane and yet was
: completely sane a day ago. Her people and our people cannot account
: for a missing nine hour period just before this onset. You should be
: interested in this because Wanda Collins resigned from the Communist
: Party some time ago, fore-swore it and tried to make amends with
: Scientology and would be a logical candidate for an LSD attack.

: Concurrently with this in Phoenix, Arizona,


: our Mr. Bud Clark was suddenly arrested "for practising medicine
: without a license", and this is very odd because he is the first
: Dianeticist or Scientologist in five years of world wide operation to
: be so accused. He could not have been practising medicine because
: Dianetics and Scientology seek only to assist able people to improve
: their talents and have no interest in sickness or insanity. He was
: arrested and without any search warrant all his papers and letters were
: seized even down to blank typewriter paper and were carried away, a
: fact which places this matter quite solidly in the field of the F.B.I.
: Mr. Clark is a half-blind deaf old man. He was once a chiropractor
: but has long since ceased to be one. He was told by the County
: Attorney that the County Attorney meant to "get to the bottom of this
: thing about Hubbard and Scientology."

: The "bottom of the thing" can be found in "Who Knows and What"
: and "Who's Who in the East" in the local library or from bookstores
: which carry my books. My own life is about as hard to investigate as
: a white rock on a summer's day.

: It is not uncommon in the past five years to have judges and attorneys
: mad-dogged at about what a terrible person I am and how foul is
: Scientology. Persons never named or available step in, spread violent
: tales and accusations and vanish. This mad-dogging has evidently been
: done at this County Attorney to prompt such a foolish action. This
: makes the third civil official in that area to go off halRf-cocked
: about Scientology. When it is all done and Scientology has been neatly
: ruined by the newspapers in the area and when all the charges have been
: quashed there is no one from whom any recompense can be drawn. "It was
: all a mistake" ......

: In 1950 the Dianetics Foundations were violently attacked and
: discredited. The 200 Foundation employees, when screened, yielded 35
: Communist-connected persons. That done theicommotion stopped. After
: three quiet years in the Phoenix area we forwarded to the Defense
: Department data on brain-washing. Instantly


: we became the subject of violence. Four people were seized by
: psychiatrists in that area to date and to this day so far as I know are
: still being held, their sanity shattered.

: After we so informed the Defense Department about brain-washing
: techologies in our hands and offered them, we have been in a state of
: siege. Understand that we accuse the, D.D. of nothina.

: Psychiatrists as far north as Seattle have said they were "out
: to get every Scientologist." An Internal Revenue official has used
: those very words before witnesses and said he was going to get to the
: bottom of this thing in Phoenix. People in suspicious condition were
: sent from one place in Southern California to be "treated by
: Scientology" for insanity and yet we have no interest in treating
: anyone, especially the insane. Now two more people go suddenly and
: inexplicably insane in widely


: different places both the same way. All manner of defamatory
: rumors have been scattered around about me, questioning even my
: sanity which is fortunately a matter of good record with the
: Navy as by statement "having no psychotic or neurotic symptoms
: whatsoever."

: I have a wife and three little kids. I have a good many thousand
: people scattered around the world trying to help their fellow man and
: I am responsible for these people. I am trying to turn out some
: monographs on matters in my field of nuclear physics and psychology for
: submission to the government on the subject of alleviating some of the
: distress of radiation burns, a project I came east to complete. This
: lawless and brutal attack on Scientology now spreading evidently to
: three states will probably not end until a great deal of injustice and
: human suffering has occurred.

: Would you please discover for me or for yourselves the exact
: names and whereabouts of the persons whose statements inflamed the
: County Attorney in Phoenix in arresting a half-blind old man and
: seizing all his books and papers. If we have those names and if we
: trace them back we will have someplace to start on this madness


: which has reached into three states. Can you do this for us?

: I am getting additional copies of the material which was offered
: to the Defense Department since that agency has not acknowledged or
: returned anything shipped to it about brain-washing and when I have these
: copied I will send one to you for 'this is the only starting place I know
: about for this outbreak and the matter, while far from conclusive, at
: least tells me that something went astray which was dangerous in the
: wrong hands.

: Could you please have your Phoenix office obtain the names of the
: people who defamed us to the County Attorney? Your Bay Area and Richland
: offices have already been appriseS of the incidents in those areas.
