Defeated in court, L. Ron Hubbard's son boasted about spreading lies in new FBI document - 2017-12-13
Journalist Emma Best, at the Muckrock website, has convinced the FBI to cough up even more documents about the Church of Scientology, and in the latest batch there's a pretty interesting 15-page letter written by Ron DeWolf to the IRS in 1985.
"Ron DeWolf" was the name that L. Ron Hubbard Jr. adopted in order to distance himself from his famous father after he turned away from the senior Hubbard and his Scientology movement. DeWolf's family nickname was "Nibs," and he was a fascinating and problematic figure in Scientology history.
In 1952, Hubbard pulled his son out of high school to help as he was regrouping from a disastrous year of bankruptcy and divorce to start something he called "Scientology" after the failure of his "Dianetics" movement.
