Jamie DeWolf: I've found the last memoir of the son of Scientology's founder - 2014-05-10
During a mesmerizing performance last night in Clearwater, Florida at the Flag Down anti-Scientology conference, Jamie DeWolf made a stunning revelation. He's authenticated bizarre writings that had been attributed to his grandfather, L. Ron Hubbard Jr., who was the son of Scientology's founder. They paint a disturbing portrait of the influence of the occult on the Hubbard men as they used Scientology in its early days to further their personal aims.
We first wrote about Jamie in the summer of 2011, when we named him one of the "Top 25 People Crippling Scientology." Though he wasn't very well known even among former Scientologists, we said that the Bay Area performance artist had huge potential to make a major impact on how Scientology and his great-grandfather, L. Ron Hubbard, are viewed. Since then, Jamie has been working hard to make good on that prediction. A boost from Upworthy in March helped a lot, and he's continued to hone his writing about his family tree.
Jamie revealed some of that new material last night in Clearwater in a spellbinding hour-long performance which was captured on video (it starts about 6 minutes into the clip below). During that performance, Jamie revealed that he'd only recently obtained an unpublished manuscript written by his grandfather, who went by several names — L. Ron Hubbard Jr., "Nibs," and Ron DeWolf.
