Sonya Bianchi, 1927-2020: Hubbard's first 'Clear' who vanished from Scientology history - 2020-01-11
Sonya Adelaide Bianchi Hulswit, a woman L. Ron Hubbard presented at an August 1950 presentation at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles as the first example of a Scientology "Clear," died last night in Northampton, Massachusetts. Her son Chris Hulswit tells us that she was 92.
In December 2018, we reported that we'd located her some 68 years after she vanished from Scientology history. Chris Hulswit was very helpful, confirming for us that his mother was indeed the Sonya Bianchi we'd been looking for, and he asked her some questions for us.
We had hoped that we might have an opportunity to meet Sonya, but that didn't happen. We are glad, at least, that we got to learn more about what happened after that fateful August night in Los Angeles, when she then got far away from Hubbard.
