J. Edgar Hoover, FBI, replies to a woman who had inquired about the Hubbard Association of Scientologists International being a subversive organization. Hoover regrets that the FBI cannot offer her any information. In an internal note, Hoover says "While the Bureau has conducted no investigation of the Hubbard Association of Scientologists International, Bufiles reveal numerous complaints and inquiries concerning L. Ron Hubbard and the various organizations with which he is associated. ... Hubbard's wife charged in a divorce suit that he was "hopelessly insane" and had subjected her to "scientific torture experiments." According to the article, "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.""
