Your letter to me of May 2nd has been received.
NOTE: Correspondent is not identifiable in Bufiles. A copy of her letter was referred to the FDA. The Academy of Scientology, run by L. Ron Hubbard, is well-known to the Bureau. Hubbard is the founder and president of the Hubbard Dianetic Research Foundation, Inc. for the purpose of furthering Hubbard’s theory of Scientology, an alleged science which instills self-coni1dence and assists individuals in removing mental problems and obtaining human ability. Hubbard has been described as being “hopelessly insane” by his wife in suing for divorce and the “Washington Times Herald” of 4-24-51, in mentioning this divorce proceeding, stated that “competent medical advisors recommended that Hubbard be committed to a private sanitarium for psychiatric observation and treatment for a mental ailment known as paranoid schizophrenia.” (105-55601-5)
