L. Ron Hubbard Library

(from Veritas Web Site)

The  name "L. Ron Hubbard" has generated a fortune in  publishing. But in February of 1980 (or perhaps even earlier--in the  '70's, some claim), L. Ron Hubbard disappeared mysteriously, and was  never seen alive again. larchmontfin

Now  there is a corporation doing business using his name and literary  reputation, calling itself the "L. Ron Hubbard Library."  That name, though, is a "fictitious business name." In  fact, its primary business address is just a rental mail  box--#162--at a place called Village Mail Call, 419 Larchmont in Los  Angeles, which is pictured at right. And if you think that we're  pulling your leg, that this must be some sort of joke, then click to  see the actual "Fictitious  Business Name Statement" that was filed with the Los  Angeles County Recorder's office. 

The true name of the corporation  is "Church of Spiritual Technology" (CST). 

From Library of Congress records,  it seems that CST now owns ALL copyrights to everything L. Ron  Hubbard ever wrote. The story of how CST came into ownership of all  the copyrights is graphed in How  CST Grabbed the Copyrights.  As shown in that chart, the copyrights did not transfer to CST until  AFTER they were granted tax exemption by IRS. But it goes deeper  than that. As a result of that tax exemption, CST now also holds the  power and authority to seize all trademarks that are related in any  way to Dianetics or Scientology, and to seize the confidential  "Advanced Technology" (which includes the "OT  Levels"). To get the details on CST's power and authority over  the trademarks and "Advanced Technology," we recommend  that you read this 1992  Claims Court ruling.  But just one quote from that case is  telling: "CST has the power to...[take] over the religious  trademarks and use of the Advanced Technology, thereby gaining  direct control over all Scientology organizations..." 

That clearly  means that CST has ultimate power over the entire vast domain  of ALL Scientology-related entities. 

But now that CST's role as the  true power in Scientology has been revealed, the new burning  question becomes: WHO are the shadowy figures controlling CST--the  Trustees, Directors, Special Directors, and Officers? 

One thing is known: the identities  of the men behind the very existence of CST--its FOUNDERS. 

According to the Claims Court  ruling referenced above, there are four co-founders: Lyman Spurlock,  Sherman Lenske, Meade Emory, and Leon Misterek. None of them but  Lyman Spurlock is a Scientologist. Spurlock is a CPA. The other  three are attorneys. 

And now comes the REALLY weird  part: co-founder Meade  Emory is a former ASSISTANT TO THE COMMISSIONER OF IRS

You may be asking yourself about  now: WHAT is going on here? WHY all the secrets? WHY  are non-Scientologists involved in creating the most powerful  Scientology corporation? WHY does it have a rental P.O. box for a  business address? WHAT is a former IRS official doing involved with  a religion that he doesn't embrace or subscribe to? Why doesn't  anybody know the identities of the Trustees, Directors, and  Officers? Just WHAT might these people be up to? Could it possibly  be...
