Marty Rathbun said he participated in a criminal act to protect the church against a possible security breach. Longtime executive Terri Gamboa and her husband, Fernando, abandoned their posts in January 1990, setting off what Rathbun called a "seven-alert fire.'' Terri Gamboa was executive director of Author Services Inc., the independent corporation set up by founder L. Ron Hubbard to control rights to his intellectual properties. David Miscavige, the leader of the church, wanted to know if she had access to ...

They squeezed into a two bedroom apartment, all they could afford. Two couples and a single guy had left the Church of Scientology and joined up in Las Vegas, starting a mortgage business near the Palace Station Casino. They were faces in the crowd. Except that the two wives were important in Scientology history, sisters Terri and Janis Gillham. They were two of the original four "messengers" for L. Ron Hubbard. The founder ran his church from his ship, the Apollo, ...

L. Ron Hubbard's last refuge — New Times SLO (San Luis Obispo, California)
Type: Press
Author(s): Colin Rigley
Source: New Times SLO (San Luis Obispo, California)
In Santa Barbara’s Church of Scientology, as in each such outpost worldwide, an innocuous office sits equipped but vacant. This office is located beyond shelves of shrink-wrapped books, beyond training rooms, the “comm” rooms, and a room occupied by enigmatic bowls of stones and other obscure objects. The office, with white walls and plush blue-and-gray carpeting, waits, should he somehow return, for the man once known as L. Ron Hubbard. His full name was Lafayette Ronald Hubbard. His followers—in keeping with ...

Aliens, brandy and guns were the key components of a comedic adaptation of an L. Ron Hubbard novel performed by Emmy-award winning actors in the Jack Morton Auditorium last week. Hubbard, whose writings became the founding documents of the Church of Scientology, attended GW for two semesters before leaving without a degree in 1931. The adaptation of his novel "The Crossroads" was followed by a presentation on his life before, during and after his time at the University. Dion Graham from ...

Publisher stays mum on author's founding of Scientology — Village Voice
Type: Press
Author(s): John DeSio
Source: Village Voice
Once again, the publisher charged with distributing the fiction works of L. Ron Hubbard has gone out of its way to ignore Hubbard’s signature accomplishment: the founding of the Church of Scientology. In a release and accompanying promotional video touting a live-action performance of one of Hubbard’s fiction works, Galaxy Press, which sells Hubbard’s fiction under the Golden Age Stories moniker, goes to great lengths to hype Hubbard’s work with the United States Navy and his resume as an explorer. But ...

What really happened with the L. Ron Hubbard biography by Omar Garrison
Type: Account
Author(s): Lawrence H. "Larry" Brennan
As many people know, Omar Garrison was working on a biography of L. Ron Hubbard back in the early 1980s that was completely sanctioned by Hubbard and by organized scientology. In fact Gerry Armstrong was actually assigned to and working with Omar back then with the approval of both Hubbard and organized scientology. And, Gerry was part of that Mission Corporate Category Sortout (MCCS) mission that was run by [David Miscavige] with Gerry’s primary part of it being ...

Type: Book
Author(s): Jeff Hawkins
It was a warm August day in 1986. I was in my office on the third floor of the main building in the PAC Scientology complex in LA — "Big Blue." We had the windows open and the fans running, to try to suck in any vestige of a breeze that we could. Out the open window, I could see Fountain Avenue below me, and across the street, New York George’s, where I sometimes had a bowl of chili. A simmering ...

Foster and I were in a state of semi-panic as we waited for Julia to get off the phone. We were in an isolated corridor in the American Saint Hill Organization, part of the Scientology Complex – the big blue building in LA. Julia, my de facto senior at Author Services, was huddled in one of the public phone booths, talking quietly, her back to us. Foster and I kept a respectful distance across the corridor, where we looked down at ...

It was well after midnight and the Tampa airport terminal was almost empty. Just a few late-night travelers sitting on the benches, reading, trying to sleep or, like me, watching the movie on the screen hanging above the waiting area. They were showing Pancho Villa, the 1972 Eugenio Martin film with Telly Savalas as Villa. I was identifying with Villa – his betrayal and imprisonment, his escape, his revolt against his enemy, Huerta. I could feel Villa’s hot outrage. ''¡Viva la ...

Tribal members are getting advice, free trips—and perhaps a new rehab program—from their connection with L. Ron Hubbard's church. Is this the help they need? In 1964, when Rayola Running Crane was just 13, her parents sent her away from her home in Browning on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation. She and her friends were drinking alcohol on a regular basis, and she had already been in an alcohol-related car accident that caused her permanent back injuries. She says her parents gave ...

L. Ron Hubbard said he didn't want his science-fiction work to be a press release for the church he founded. Nevertheless, the connections between Battlefield Earth and Scientology are worth noting. Put him in front of a typewriter and L. Ron Hubbard's fingers flew. He did not "piddle around" with his prose like other writers, as his friend and fellow science fiction author, Robert A. Heinlein, observed in a 1982 letter. Known in the 1930s and 1940s as a writer of ...
