The Los Angeles celebration was held at the Shrine Auditorium, a location where L. Ron Hubbard lectured to an audience of six thousand on August 10, 1950 shortly after he released Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, the New York Times and international bestseller.
Born in Tilden, Nebraska on March 13th, 1911, the son of a Naval Officer, L. Ron Hubbard’s adventures and travels began at an early age by becoming the nation’s youngest Eagle Scout at 13 in 1924. By the age of 19 he had traveled over 250,000 miles before the advent of air travel throughout America, the Caribbean and the Far East. These travels brought Mr. Hubbard face to face with many different cultures where he witnessed widespread social degradation.
L. Ron Hubbard is known as one of the most prolific writers of the 20th Century. He launched his writing career in the 1930’s and over a period of half a century he authored more than three hundred novels, novelettes and short stories. His early writing career funded his continued research into the mind and the nature of man, only interrupted by his military service during WWII where he saw action both in the Atlantic and the Pacific. In 1948 Mr. Hubbard served as a Special Officer of the LAPD which was the basis for his discoveries on the cause and prevention of crime now a part of his humanitarian programs.
Mr. Hubbard’s research over several decades culminated with the release of Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, and several years later came his founding of the Scientology religion. Continuously researching in order to help his fellow man, L. Ron Hubbard later developed humanitarian programs for drug rehabilitation and detoxification, criminal reform, learning, literacy and his common sense guide to better living—The Way to Happiness—which have touched close to a billion lives in some 170 nations. Today there are some three hundred million L. Ron Hubbard fiction and nonfiction books in circulation and he is the single most translated and published author today.
Mr. Hubbard once said, “I like to help others and count it as my greatest pleasure in life to see a person free himself of the shadows which darken his days,” stated Monica Sanz Polo, President of the Friends of L. Ron Hubbard Foundation, who added, “His life long humanitarian works have helped improve the lives of millions of people around the world. To date there have been over 4,000 awards, proclamations and recognitions for L. Ron Hubbard in acknowledgement of a lifetime of creative and humanitarian service in the fields of drug rehabilitation, education, criminal reform, moral resurgence and the arts.”
