The L. Ron Hubbard Traditional Literary Correspondence from the Early Years
Letter from a longshoreman
Letter from the birth of Dianetics
Letter from the eye of the storm


Introduction

From the greater body of materials assembled for the eventual L. Ron Hubbard biography and that augmentative biographical project, the Ron Series, comes an extensive collection of LRH correspondence and journals. All told, this collection constitutes a remarkable find, providing much detail and color to a most remarkable life. Given these papers span the whole of that life – from the earliest steps of Ron’s journey to his ultimate triumph – this issue marks yet another in a new series of supplemental Ron publications, Ron: Letters and Journals. As the term “supplemental” implies, Letters and Journals are intended to be read in conjunction with the Ron Series. For in providing extracts of materials from which the Ron Series is derived, readers receive both a feel of the time and a sense of Ron’s voice through the various phases of his life discussed in that Series.

True, what is presented here represents but a fraction of the material from which the Ron Series is distilled. Indeed, beneath the Ron Series proper and the LRH biography stand more than a hundred thousand pages of LRH letters, journals and diaries. Yet given the insight even a small selection of these materials offer, Letters and Journals become invaluable. For example, no student of Dianetics and Scientology has not heard of the enthusiasm following the publication of the book Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health – well that is the stuff of the letters presented here.
