DATE CONVENTIONS IN THE TIME LINE

It has been impossible to get exact dates for some of the events
listed herein. If the event seemed important enough to include, yet no
exact day--or, in some cases, no month--was given, the indication "c."
(for circa) has been put AFTER the information (day or month) in
question.
    As an example, an event known to have occurred in June of 1974, but
without certainty as to the actual day, might be listed as "Saturday, 1
c. June 1974." If only a month and year are known (as in the example
just given), and there is no indication of, e.g., "late June," then the
event has usually been assigned arbitrarily to the 1st or the 15th of
the indicated month, unless surrounding events indicate a different,
more likely day of the month. The weekday names (e.g. Monday, Tuesday,
etc.) have been included as additional data.
    If the only indication of the time of the event was "mid-1974,"
then the entry might read "Saturday, 1 c. June c. 1974, indicating that
the month, too, is estimated from the language of the referenced source.
Only rarely have incidents been included where the only information
available is a givien year. When it seemed important enough to include
in the Time Line, it was put, usually, at 1 c. January c. of the given
year, or at 1 c. July c. of the given year, whichever seemed most
likely--mainly as a "bookmark" for the event, pending more exact dating.
Every effort has been made to isolate, as closely as possible, the
exact date for each event. If anyone has any more accurate information
about any event described herein, please post it to the newsgroup,
"alt.religion.scientology."

Quoted from Gerald Armstrong legal document: "It was [Mary Sue Hubbard]
who, in early 1981, ordered certain biographical materials from
Controller Archives to be delivered to Defendant Armstrong. These
materials consisted of several letters written by Hubbard in the 1920's
and 1930's, Hubbard's Boy Scout books and materials, several old Hubbard
family photographs, a diary kept by Hubbard in his youth, and several
other items."
SOURCE: Gerald Armstrong's "Appendix" for an unknown court case

Sunday, 01 c. February c. 1981
Quoted from Gerald Armstrong legal document: "For the first year...of
the Hubbard biography and archive project, funding came from Hubbard's
personal staff unit at Gilman Hot Springs.... In early 1981... Defendant
Armstrong's supervisor, Laurel Sullivan, ordered him to request that
funding come from...Sea Org Reserves. Approval for this change in
funding came from the Sea Org Reserves Chief and Watch Dog Committee,
the top Commodores Messenger Organization unit...."
OUTPOINTS: CONTRARY FACTS: Laurel Sullivan is STILL Armstrong's
"supervisor." Well, Sullivan is supposedly in charge of MCCS.
Armstrong's involvement in MCCS supposedly ended back in JUNE of 1980.
So how the hell did he ever get hold of the Zolin tapes (if he
did--sigh) when that meeting didn't take place until October 1980, and
why is he still working under Sullivan?

David Miscavige allegedly calls on Mary Sue Hubbard with a letter
"prepared by lawyers" which argues that MSH's presence as the Guardians'
controller implicates LRH in all church matters including the GO cases.
She steps down and "is later removed from office," (sic) as is Jane
Kember. [NOTE: Re the "letter prepared by lawyers" comment, this is

Quoting from legal document of Michael Flynn: "[David] Miscavige and
[Norman] Starkey, as agents of Hubbard, convened a meeting of lawyers in
Atlanta, Georgia for the purpose of initiating Bar complaints, lawsuits,
depositions, motions for disqualification, and contempt motions in order
to harass plaintiff (Michael Flynn) by use of the judicial system. The
meeting took place in July, 1981 and it was attended by attorneys Harvey
Silverglate, Jay Roth, Steven Burris, Donald Randolph, Sherman Lenske,
Dan Warren and others."
OUTPOINTS: CONTRARY FACTS: Miscavige and Starkey could not have been at
this lawyer group-grope in Atlanta, while simultaneously removing Mary
Sue Hubbard. Of course, the date of this entry is estimated, so perhaps
it could have happened later in July, if it happened at all.

Quoting from David Miscavige:
    "34. Shortly before the purge of the Guardian's Office, I discussed
with Laurel Sullivan various illicit GO activities we had already
uncovered. Sullivan was aware of these activities. Sullivan did not
agree that the acts the GO had committed were atrocious and that Mary
Sue Hubbard and the rest of her criminal group needed to be removed. She
insisted that Mary Sue Hubbard remain in power and that at all costs she
and the Guardian's Office should maintain total control of the
organization regardless of the criminal acts exposed by the government
and others, in which Sullivan felt the GO was completely justified in
committing.
    "35. Upon learning of Laurel Sullivan's alliance with the GO and
the plans to reorganize the Church under Mary Sue Hubbard and her GO
allies, I removed Sullivan from her position and disbanded the MCCS
project altogether. In fact, recently released documents reveal that
Laurel Sullivan--who would later become an adverse witness against the
church and me--long ago admitted to law enforcement officials that the
corporate restructuring of the Church actually implemented, differed
entirely from that envisioned in her MCCS project."

Quoting from David Miscavige: "Within a day of Mary Sue Hubbard's

conspired to regain control of the GO. Mary Sue Hubbard signed a letter
revoking her resignation and condemning the actions of the CMO. Scores
of GO staff responded, locking the missionaires out of their premises
and were intending to hire armed guards to bar access by me and the
other Church officials who had ousted them. I then confronted the
mutineers, and persuaded Mary Sue Hubbard to again resign, which ended
the last vestige of GO resistance."

Gerald Armstrong writes a letter to CMO officer Cirrus Slevin insisting
on the importance of making sure that anything published about LRH's

SOURCE: Gerald Armstrong's "Appendix" for an unknown court case

Friday, 27 c. November 1981
Quoted from Gerald Armstrong:
    "I wrote a number of dispatches in an attempt to get the lies
removed from the various biographical sketches in books and promotional
literature; and the last dispatch was to the Master at Arms having to do
with Starkey's response to a previous report of mine.
    "Starkey dropped into Archives, where I was working, one day. He
was there to ask questions. I had just gotten back at that time from
seeing Nibs [Ron Jr.] with Omar. I said to Starkey that, in my opinion,
a lot of the problems with Nibs had been created by the organization. I
said that Nibs was not 100 percent wrong in this whole thing. 'He looks
like he could be a decent guy,' I said.
    "And then somehow we got up to Hubbard's lying, and I said,
'Listen, we can't continue to claim that the guy's a nuclear physicist.'
And Starkey said, 'Well he never said it! Just a bunch of stupid PRs
said it.' So I walked over to the shelf [filled with] the books we'd
bought from Virgil which contained the original Scientology 8-80, done
in 1952, which was a manuscript edition, and there it was... . I showed
to Starkey where Hubbard claims, in his own handwriting, to have been a
nuclear physicist. Starkey just stomped out of there.
    "Then a few days later I was called out to Gilman Hot Springs to
talk with the Master at Arms about a report from Starkey. It was a
secret report saying that he was concerned as to what documents I might
have given Garrison, and he was saying things like, 'Armstrong is
stating that we are responsible for Nib's problems.' This was a fairly
accurate rendition of the way I had spoken about it, but it was apparent
that it was completely unacceptable that I do such a thing. It would
just be a matter of time till I was 'busted.'
    "So I was desperately trying to get Garrison everything that I
could. I now knew that the whole thing was crazy, but also that I
couldn't quit the job until I was through getting Garrison what he
needed.
    "The pressure of the situation was getting to me. I was one screwed
up kid in those days.
    "So I worked as long as I could and copied virtually everything I
could for Garrison. I knew I had to do that, because I knew that I would
soon be sec checked on what I'd been giving Garrison, and so I had to
get it to him before that."

Quoted from Gerald Armstrong:
    "Joycelyn [Gerald Armstrong's wife] was still working for me at
that time and we were copying madly to get all we could to Garrison.
    "Every day I was going to Costa Mesa in Orange County, where Omar
Garrison lived, and I would take down a box of materials that I had
copied. Then I'd take down a box of shirts or books or whatever, until
we got down to the point where we had, box by box, totally moved the
whole place out.
    "The last thing we had was Joycelyn's bicycle, and we made like we
were going off for a ride. We were gone. I had Garrison's truck, parked
right on the corner. I went and threw the bike in it. We went to
Garrison's place in Costa Mesa. The following morning we left and went
to their place in Utah and stayed there for a week.
    "It was the great escape right under their noses."

SOURCE: Document posted to the internet; source unknown

Friday, 01 January 1982
Quoted from David Miscavige: "Part of the measures taken to ensure a
similar situation could never recur was the formation of the Religious
Technology Center on 1 January 1982, [sic] L. Ron Hubbard bestowed the
trademarks of Scientology to RTC, whose purpose is to safeguard the
proper use of the marks and ensure they remain in good hands and are
properly used."
OUTPOINTS: DROPPED OUT TIME, ALTERED SEQUENCE, ADDED INAPPLICABLE
CONFUSION: His sentence is not a sentence and makes it unclear whether
he is saying that RTC was formed on 1 January 1982, or the trademarks
were bestowed on that date, or both. This confused sentence is probably
worded incomprehensibly on purpose, because the instrument "bestowing"
the trademarks has both a 16 May 1982 date (when RTC signed), AND a 19
January 1982 date, and yet another document purportedly has RTC
licensing the Advanced Technology to others on 1 January 1982.

Intact Conviction of Scientology Official," by KEVIN COSTELLOE,

    "The Supreme Court today left intact the conviction of Mary Sue
Hubbard, the No. 2 official of the controversial Church of Scientology,
stemming from an alleged plot to steal government documents.
"The court, without comment, turned aside objections to the
conspiracy convictions of Ms. Hubbard and Duke Snider, another church
official.
    "...The high court today also turned down the church's objections
to an FBI search of the church's offices in Washington, D.C. The search,
involving 25 FBI agents, occurred simultaneously with the raid in Los
Angeles.
    "The documents seized ranged from a Freedom of Information Act
request form, to correspondence between the church's lawyer in England
and Scotland Yard.
    "The appeals court in Washington sent the case back to a trial
court to see which documents should be returned to the church on the
grounds they were illegally seized.
    "The government said it voluntarily returned 40 percent of the
documents seized in the Los Angeles search, and offered to return nearly
80 percent of the documents seized from the Washington office of the
church.
    "Evidence found in the search in Washington was not used in the
criminal prosecution. Evidence seized in the Los Angeles raid was used
to prosecute the church members."

Ronald DeWolf, 47, is the second of two witnesses at the opening session
of a series of hearings being conducted by the Clearwater, Florida city
commission into the operation of the church. Ed Walters, a 44-year-old
"former high-ranking church member who works at a Nevada casino," is the
first witness, and tells the commission he helped burglarize buildings
in Las Vegas, to help gain personal information about church members
that the church used to insure members would never leave, and said
church members frequently planted illegal drugs on their enemies and
then turned them in to police. City officials say the hearings are a
prelude to passage of ordinances to control charitable solicitations and
for consumer protection. (A charitable solicitations ordinance could
force the Scientologists to provide financial records they have so far
refused to reveal.) The hearings are being conducted by Boston attorney
Michael Flynn, who has 27 suits pending against the church around the
country. Church officials have sought unsuccessfully, the week before,
to obtain a federal court injunction to prevent the hearings, and church
attorney Paul Johnson of Tampa storms from the hearing when Mayor
Charles LeCher and the commissioners refuse to let him make an opening
statement.

hereby acknowledged, said L. Ron Hubbard does hereby assign unto said

that "the Scientology religion" is NOT the same entity as "Scientology."
The usage of the phrase "the Scientology religion" has come into being

that Marlowe writes in "the May 16 entry on the first page." [NOTE: In
no case is any of the COPYRIGHT OWNERSHIP of these rights transferred.
According to Sherman Lenske: "As one part of Mr. Hubbard's estate
planning, he directed that his U.S. rights to the Advanced Technology,
exclusive of copyrights, [emhasis added] be conveyed to RTC at that time
[referring to the time of the May 16, 1982 Assignment] and the remainder
[of LICENSED rights to the Advanced Technology] would be transferred to

Gerald Armstrong is interviewed for a story in the Riverside
Press-Enterprise newspaper, in which he says that LRH may be dead. He
says that LRH suffered "numerous medical problems, twice requiring
hospitalization in the 1970s." Apparently, Kima Douglas, described as
being "of Palm Desert," and described as "Hubbard's former personal
medical officer," is also interviewed for the same article, but
"declined comment other than to say the church founder had blood clots
in the lung." Either Armstrong, DeWolf, or Douglas (?!?--no way to tell
from the UPI story!!) tell UPI and/or Riverside Press-Enterprise that
LRH "went to Gilman Hot Springs after being hospitalized in Los Angeles
in 1978." In the UPI story, Gerald Armstrong says that he last saw
Hubbard "toward the end of last year," and that "His (LRH's) weight was
way down. He was very shaky. He always shook a lot. His hands were never
steady. I felt he looked very weak and drawn. There is every chance that
the man is in fact dead."

Friday, 12 November 1982
L. Ron Huubard, Jr., aka Ronald DeWolf, aka Nibs, files a petition in
Superior Court in Riverside County, California--with 30,000 accompanying
documents[!]--saying that he believes that his father is dead or
mentally incompetent, and asking the court to appoint him trustee--and
or give him conservatorship power--of his father's affairs to protect
the assets. DeWolf alleges "that officials of the church have stolen
millions of dollars, gems and securities from his 71-year-old father or
from his estate in the past year." He also claims in the court action
that Scientology worldwide is "being run by David Miscevage
[sic--Miscavige], described in the petition as a '22-year-old with a
ninth-grade education.'" DeWolf further chargea Miscavige and James
Isaacson "forged Hubbard's signature to loot the accounts." DeWolf says,
"The only way he (Hubbard) can contest all of this is to show up
physically in court. But I expect he may have trouble doing that because
I don't think he is alive." Other claims made by DeWolf, either in the
petition, and/or in a story about it that appeared in the Riverside
Press-Enterprise newspaper include: "While living in La Quinta in
Riverside County, Hubbard made secret plans for his death...and
instructed [Kima] Douglas to "'bury him in the date fields' in the area
and not to disclose his death. 'Shortly thereafter,' DeWolf said in his
petition, 'my father disappeared.' Hubbard's son filed his petition in
Riverside County because his father's last known whereabouts was Gilman
Hot Springs, a former resort near Hemet that is now owned by the
Scientologists. Since October 1981, DeWolf contends, millions of dollars
have been removed from Hubbard's bank accounts with forged signatures.
He said the New England Merchants Bank froze Hubbard's account after
determining that a $2 million check written against it in June had a
forged signature. His petition claims attempts also have been made to
sell about $1 million worth of Hubbard's gems in Los Angeles and that
Scientology officials 'surreptitiously acquired all of the copyrights'
to Hubbard's books and articles spanning 30 years. In his petition,
DeWolf portrays his father as a heavy drug user who wrote his most
important books and articles while 'saturated' with cocaine and other
drugs. Moreover, he suffered from venereal disease most of his adult
life, said De Wolf, claiming his father was mentally ill for decades.
According to DeWolf, Hubbard's beliefs came from black magic and satanic
theories associated with the Order of Templars Orientalis and its
founder, Englishman Aleister Crowley. Hubbard became involved with John
W. Parsons, a close associate of Crowley's, and Sarah [sic] Northrup, at
the end of World War II, he alleges. The trio attempted to create a
'moonchild' during 11 days of rituals when 'an unborn human embryo was
"implanted" with "satanic power,"' the court document contends." Of the
petition, it is said, "He [DeWolf] made the request after a longtime
Hubbard aide [Armstrong?] submitted a 21-page court affidavit in another
case swearing that Hubbard had repeatedly fled Southern California
residences in fear of federal agents, that he was obsessed with
cleanliness, ordering that living quarters be dust-free and his bedroom
tiled. More claims in the stories covering this: "A science fiction
novel by Hubbard...was published in October, but DeWolf claimed the
800-page saga, 'Battlefield Earth,' and other publications released
under his father's name in recent years actually were crafted by church
officials."
OUTPOINTS: CONTRARY FACTS, ADDED CONFUSION: The "30,000 accompanying
documents." Is this actually part of the Armstrong case? This is
additionally confused by a report [see entry for 10 February 1983] that
the ownership of these documents are the subject of a case in Los
Angeles Superior Court. But DeWolf's case is filed in Riverside County.
This needs some sort-out. But it seems that there is definitely a
connection between DeWolf's case, and Armstrong's.

UPI quotes from a telephone interview with Ronald DeWolf: "Nobody has
seen him [LRH] since March 1980. We have evidence we will bring into
court Dec. 30 to show that he died here in the United States, probably
in Hemet. ...He was in incredibly poor health for many, many years. He
always put out the line that he was in extremely good health when in
fact he was in incredibly poor health." DeWolf is also reported to have
said that his father, who would be 71, suffered from pulmonary
embolisms, an ulcer, arthritis and venereal disease, and that LRH asked
to be buried secretly so church members would continue to think he was
alive and in perfect health. "One of the last thing he said to medical
attendants was, 'Bury me in the date fields and don't tell anyone," UPI
quotes DeWolf as saying.
OUTPOINTS: CONTRARY FACTS: Ron DeWolf[e] claims nobody has seen LRH
since March 1980. But Gerald Armstrong has told the press that he last
saw LRH near the end of 1981! [See entry for 12 Noveber 1982.]

writing.'"

    "LOS ANGELES, Nov. 17 /PRN/ -- The Church of Scientology announced
today it has filed an abuse of process lawsuit here, charging that
out-of-state lawyer Michael Flynn and his associates have for years
carried out a carefully organized plan to destroy the church through a
massive and continuing media and legal campaign.
    "Flynn's strategy, according to the lawsuit and accompanying
documentation filed in Los Angeles U.S. District Court, included plans
to precipitate federal and state attacks upon the church.
    "In a parallel announcement, church attorney John Peterson
dismissed a suit filed last week in Riverside, Calif., by Ronald DeWolf
as 'just one more maneuver by Mr. Flynn and his associates to help along
other cases they have pending.'
    "Peterson cited a sworn deposition by Flynn dated Aug. 28, 1982, in
which the attorney admitted that he represented DeWolf, eldest son of
Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, and that he was 'preparing various
petitions to several courts" for DeWolf in order "to collect his
(Hubbard's) assets.'
    "In the Los Angeles abuse of process action against Flynn, the
Church of Scientology revealed a June 2, 1981, letter from Flynn to
church attorney Jay Roth in which Flynn offered to settle his actions
against the church for $1.6 million. The proposal was rejected.
    "The abuse of process suit by the church charged that while
ostensibly pursuing a class action suit against the church, Flynn and
his associates, Thomas Hoffman and Thomas Greene, were actually plotting
to force the church to settle the class action by making it 'cost
ineffective' for the church to defend itself.
    "The legal process would be made more costly for the
Scientologists, according to Flynn's own documents, if 'adverse media'
could be generated against the church by 'feeding media in all pertinent
cities.'
    "Peterson stated that the church possessed some 20,000 pages of
documents which substantiated its charges against Flynn and his
associates./NOTE -- The full background documentation for this story is

Friday, 19 November 1982
A notice is filed Friday in Riverside County Superior Court on behalf of
Mary Sue Hubbard, 51, seeking to keep her stepson, Ronald E. DeWolf,
from being named trustee of LRH's estate. Her attorney, Barrett S. Litt,
gives several quotes to the Associated Press: "Her husband, as far as
she is aware, is perfectly capable of handling his own affairs and is
doing so. She is opposed to an invasion of (Hubbard's) privacy. [She]
hears from (Hubbard) on a regular basis and is comfortably supported by
her husband on a monthly basis."
    Litt admits that Mrs. Hubbard--the church founder's third wife--has
not seen her reclusive husband since 1979, but he says she "feels there
is no need for DeWolf's petition." The story goes on:
    "It is uncertain whether Mrs. Hubbard will attend the hearing
because she faces sentencing Dec. 9 in Washington, D.C., on her
conviction in a Church of Scientology scheme to steal federal government
documents. ...At the time of her conviction, Mrs. Hubbard was controller
of the church. She has since resigned. Litt said Mrs. Hubbard was not
seeking to substitute herself for DeWolf as Hubbard's trustee.
    "But he added, 'If a trustee were to be appointed, she would be the
presumptive person to be trustee since state statutes give preference to
a spouse.'"
    In the UPI version, Litt says that Mary Sue "has not seen her
71-year-old husband since 1979 but has no reason to believe he is dead."
    UPI also says: "Mrs. Hubbard filed a notice to appear at the Dec. 30
hearing for DeWolf to present evidence supporting his petition, but it
was uncertain whether she could attend because she is scheduled to be
sentenced in Washington on Dec. 9." And: "Litt said Mrs. Hubbard, 51,
who lives in Los Angeles, opposes DeWolf's petition on grounds there is
no evidence to support the claim that Hubbard cannot handle his own
affairs and no reason to invade her husband's privacy. 'Her position is
there is no need for anyone to be named trustee,' Litt said. 'As far as
she is aware and concerned, her husband has made arrangement for his
property. She receives support from him and communications by mail.
There is no reason to believe there is any problem.' The attorney said
he did not know why the Hubbards have not seen each other since 1979,
but said it was not unusual for them to be apart for long periods of
time."

A hearing is held regarding the Ronald DeWolf petition to be made
trustee of his father's asset's. Attorneys for Mary Sue Hubbard urge
Superior Court Judge J. David Hennigan to dismiss Wolf's petition. Los
Angeles attorney Barrett Litt contends that the court action is an
invasion of Hubbard's privacy. Judge Hennigan challenges Litt to have
LRH appear in court: "If he (Hubbard) is concerned about his privacy,"
the judge says, "all he has to do is walk in here and say, 'Here I am'
and 'I'm alive.'" Litt says that LRH, long a recluse, will not appear.
Hennigan then schedules a trial to begin 18 April 1983. Judge Hennigan
has said that it is unlikely he will appoint DeWolf as trustee of his
father's assets because the two have been estranged since 1959, when
DeWolf left the church and changed his name from L. Ron Hubbard Jr. The
judge asks if Mrs. Hubbard would be willing to be trustee if the
Scientology founder is ruled dead or incompetent. "She, or a nominee,
would act as a trustee," attorney Litt says. An attorney for DeWolf,
Wilkie Cheong of Los Angeles, says he would object to Mary Sue Hubbard
or her nominee acting as a trustee. "We would like the court to suggest
a corporate trustee," he says, "such as a trust department at a large
bank."
