We want to thank Karen de la Carriere for digging out of her huge collection some pure, unadulterated apex-Scientology nostalgia for us all to see.

The era was right around 1990, when Scientology was at its absolute height — former top executives tell us the organization achieved its greatest expansion around that time, with about 100,000 active members around the world. (Scientology has never had the "millions" that it claims.) And not only was it larger then, despite the death of its founder L. Ron Hubbard in 1986, Scientology had managed with the help of its celebrities to attain a sort of corporate-training gloss and an undeniable influence on Hollywood, which was terrified of it.

And so was the IRS. In 1993, Scientology leader David Miscavige celebrated his greatest achievement when the church attained tax-exempt status after warring with the IRS for decades.
