Aug 1, 1951 Boiled Engrams — American Mercury
In May of last year, from the modest little town of Elizabeth, New Jersey, came a voice that promised complete salvation for mankind on this earth. That in itself is nothing new, but this particular voice was a powerful roar, worth at least a footnote in any account of our troubled age. It was the voice of a man by the name of L. Ron Hubbard. Until this moment, Hubbard had been known as a writer of science fiction fantasies. But ...
Aug 1, 1951 Dianetics // A critical appraisal of a best-selling book that originated in the realm of science-fiction and became the basis for a new cult — Consumer Reports
Dianetics is the title of a book (and a "science") which, for many months, held its place as a best seller in the non-fiction field.

Apr 1, 1951 Peace of Mind in Dianetics? — Better Homes & Gardens
Frederick L. Schuman
Better Homes & Gardens
I first read with skepticism and the reread with growing interest: Dianetics, The Modern Science of Mental Health, Hermitage House, New York. Let it be clearly understood that Hubbard's neat and exciting theory is not proved, in any genuinely scientific sense, by any documented evidence in the book or anywhere else to date. None of the 275 cases on which Hubbard based his work has been written up in scholarly form. No one has ever "seen" an engram or observed any ...
