New government release contains a surprise: L. Ron Hubbard flunked out of high school, too! - 2015-02-24
Hubbard in 1928 We have another surprising set of documents recently unearthed by a researcher who is a friend to the Underground Bunker and has been making use of the Muckrock website for submitting Freedom of Information Act record requests.
For several weeks now, we've been plowing through documents released by the Food and Drug Administration, which investigated L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology for a 1963 raid of the Washington DC "Founding Church," and then continued to gather information during 8 years of intense litigation over health claims made by Scientology for its "E-meter."
We have found that FDA inspectors looked into every aspect of Hubbard's life, and in these new documents, we learn that in 1963 they dug up a pretty complete set of Hubbard's school records. Longtime Scientology watchers know that transcripts of Hubbard's brief college career have been online for many years. But now, for the first time, we have his high school grades.
