Isadore M. "Izzy" Chait, the well known dealer in Asian art and Scientologist OT 8 who fiercely defended the organization, died this morning of kidney failure at a Los Angeles hospital. He was 74.

Chait was born on April 21, 1946 in Germany and moved to Los Angeles as a child, and by 1969 was dealing in Asian antiques and art, opening up a gallery in West Hollywood and then moving to Beverly Hills.

But his later years were marked by a few different controversies stemming both from his Scientology involvement and government investigations of his legendary art gallery.
