Older than Pythagoras, and guaranteed to raise your IQ: What Scientology promised in 1954 - 2016-10-14
(L. Ron Hubbard, circa 1954)
Previously, our tipster who searches through old newspaper clippings found for us a rare interview of L. Ron Hubbard that took place in Tunisia in 1968. One of our favorite revelations in that interview was that Hubbard didn't deny that he'd claimed to have made trips to "Heaven."
This time, our archives wrangler found another interesting item, from an earlier era. It was June 1954, and Chicago magazine ran an unbylined piece about visiting some local Scientologists as they went through processing at the local org.
