L. Ron Hubbard
Dianetics and Scientology were developed by L. Ron Hubbard, American writer and philosopher.
Much of Hubbard’s early youth was spent in the American West and he travelled extensively in Asia as a young man.
He wrote and published over 15,000,000 words of articles and novels of all kinds before World War II.
During that war he served as a commander of corvettes and was extensively decorated.
Crippled and blind at the end of the war, he resumed his studies of philosophy and by his discoveries recovered so fully that he was reclassified in 1949 for full combat duty. It is a matter of medical record that he has twice been pronounced dead and that in 1950 he was given a perfect score on mental and physical fitness reports.Cover Design Copyright © 1971 by L.
