Yesterday, we told you about Lauren Wolf describing what it was like to work for Lawrence Wright on his book Going Clear and finding an example of Scientology trying to erase the existence of L. Ron Hubbard's second wife, Sara Northrup, from the record with creative photoshopping.

She told us that in the "Master Mariner" volume of "The RON Series" of "biographical encyclopedias" (pictured, right), she found an example of the church pulling Sara from a 1946 photograph of her with Hubbard.

This is the set of books that Scientology has asked its members to raise money for in order to send out copies to foreign governments and other "opinion leaders." It's as official as it gets when it comes to a Church of Scientology record of its founder, and Lauren found a pretty blatant example that it plays fast and loose with the truth.
