david Miscavige Speaks

L. Ron Hubbard in Washington D.C.

Several years ago, at the grand opening of the Founding Church of Scientology, Mr. David Miscavige, Chairman of the Board of Religious Technology Center, spoke of the significance of Washington DC in L. Ron Hubbard's life.

Mr. Miscavige stated:

"It was November of 1923, when L. Ron Hubbard first moved to Washington, at the age of twelve. A few months later, he was not only America’s youngest Eagle Scout, but was shaking hands with none other than President Calvin Coolidge on the steps of the White House. It is also here that L. Ron Hubbard took his first steps into Terra Incognita with his good friend — Commander Snake Thompson."

L. Ron Hubbard relates the story of Snake Thompson and the significance of this friendship with him in a tape called The Story of Dianetics and Scientology which is available oneline at
