FBI Report

Date: February 3, 1959
In response to a request for an FBI file check, a report is written on L. Ron Hubbard and the Hubbard Dianetic Auditors School in New Jersey. The report says that the FBI hasn't investigated either one, but mentions the Look magazine article (including the claim that dianetics "is a milestone for Man comparable to his discovery of fire and superior to his inventions of the wheel and the arch" and the claims that it can cure everything from eye trouble, bursitis, ulcers, and colds). It also mentions the divorce suit and the bit about "competent medical advisors recommended that Hubbard be committed to a private sanitarium for psychiatric observation and treatment of a mental ailment known as paranoid schizophrenia."
