On February 21, 1958, the Secret Service was asked to investigate the National Academy of Psychology on the initiation of the office of the Vice President Nixon. The investigation indicated that the Vice President was not interested in sponsoring the National Academy of Psychology, and would not permit the Vice President’s name to be used. Report indicates that the National Academy of Psychology had forwarded an oath of loyalty to all psychologists, psychiatrists, and psychoanalysts, as well as ministers. A copy of this was also sent to the office of The Vice President, along with a copy of Ability Magazine No. 65. This magazine apparently indicates that those who sign the oath of loyalty are safe prospects. Those who ignore or refuse to sign the oath of loyalty are potential subversive; and those who might rail against signing the oath of loyalty are subversive.
The letter also indicated that Vice President Nixon was interested in a list of people who signed or did not sign this oath of loyalty.
National Academy of Psychology also indicated that those sign would become accredited and would have their credentials available upon request at the Academy for any people interested in them. The charge for verification of credentials would be $25.00.
Secret Service investigated the matter; and during the investigation, they found that a Mr. Glenn Sanford Elliot, a member of the National Academy of Psychology with address given as 7927 Georgia Avenue, Silver Springs, Maryland, was arrested on January 24, 1957 by the Check and Fraud Squad of the D. C. Metropolitan Police. He was arrested on charges of false pretenses when he issued a check for $150.00 on a bank account which he had closed 6 months prior. The case was nolle prossed. Mr. Glenn Elliott was indicated as having been born 2/15/1895 in Berwick, Maine.
Other organizations connected with the National Academy of Psychology were those that we have recently referred to during this investigation of Mr. L. Ron Hubbard, as well as the following which are not as common:
The International Library of Arts & Scientists
The Scientific Press, Inc.
Hubbard College, Wichita, Kansas
The investigation also indicated that Hubbard Dianetic Research Foundation was required to cease operations in Hawaii due to violation of the local medical practice laws.
The investigation referred to newspaper articles which indicated that on April 24, 1951, Mrs. Sara Northrup Hubbard sued L. Ron Hubbard for divorce claiming that he subjected her to scientific torture experiment by denial of sleep, beatings, strangulation, and suggestions that she kill herself.
The file also indicated that Lt. Chennalt of the D. C. Police Dept. had extensive files on these organizations.
This file was closed and was filed as number CO-2-22.825. It is classed as a protective research case.
We may wish to contact our resident in Hawaii to determine the legal action that was apparently taken against the Hubbard Dianetic Research Foundation in that state.
