The Bare-Faced Messiah Interviews


L. Ron Hubbard would have got nowhere without two advantages which, in hindsight, he was extremely fortunate to enjoy: great charisma and a lot of devoted friends and followers. When he was doing the research for Bare-Faced Messiah, Russell Miller conducted interviews with a number of people who had known Hubbard at various times of his life - family, friends and followers. The documents linked below are the transcripts of these interviews. Curiously, even though several remembered Hubbard behaving in a sometimes appalling manner towards those in his power, the great majority remembered him with some affection.

A few more transcripts will be appearing here in the near future.

* Robert MacDonald Ford - US Senator & friend of Ron, 1938 - c1947

* Nieson Himmel - Ron's roommate in Jack Parsons' mansion, 1946

* "Barbara Kaye" - Ron's lover, 1950 - 1951
