We have a follow-up to our story Wednesday about Scientology doing what it can to erase L. Ron Hubbard's second wife, Sara Northrup, from the historical record.

We had some help from Lauren Wolf, who worked as research assistant to author and New Yorker staff writer Lawrence Wright on his 2013 book, Going Clear. It was Lauren who had spotted a photograph in a Scientology publication that erased Sara Northrup from a 1946 photo with Hubbard. She told us she had found it too late for Wright's book, and we were grateful that she brought it to the Underground Bunker.

We told her we'd be happy to take any other tips from her — her knowledge and research into Hubbard's life is top notch. And sure enough, she took us up on it!
