L. Ron Hubbard's son was troubled, but don't discount him entirely: few knew his father better - 2017-12-16
Earlier this week, we wrote about a 15-page 1985 letter written by Ron DeWolf to the IRS that was released by the FBI and became public for the first time. DeWolf was the name adopted by L. Ron Hubbard Jr., who was known as "Nibs" to the Hubbard family. We asked Jon Atack for his thoughts on Nibs and the new letter, and he sent us this piece.
I was in touch with Nibs – L. Ron Hubbard Jr. – through an intermediary in 1984. I would write questions, my friend would phone Nibs, and have long and elaborate conversations with him. Nibs sent me a recorded talk at this time.
