FBI, Malmfeldt

Date: December 10, 1968
FBI employee Malmfeldt writes a memo to "Mr. Bishop" (apparently a government employee, although I can't tell where he works) about the letter from congressman Eshleman expressing concern about Scientology. In the memo, he includes the usual FBI information (Hubbard's wife claimed he was "hopelessly insane," and medical advisors recommended he be treated for paranoid schizophrenia). He also notes that the New Jersey Board of Medical Examiners had a case against the Hubbard Dianetic Research Founndation in March, 1951, for conducting a school of medicine without a license, and that the Department of Justice requested info about Scientology because of the Tax Division's involvement in litigation over its tax-exempt status. He also notes that Scientology has been investigated by "the Food and Drug Administration, Internal Revenue Service, and the Army."
