L. Ron Hubbard: a Chronology
Significant Events in the life of L. Ron Hubbard

The following chronology presents the milestone events along the many avenues L. Ron Hubbard walked—as an adventurer, explorer, author, philosopher and all else that led him to truthfully declare:

“I have lived no cloistered life and hold in contempt the wise man who has not lived and the scholar who will not share.”

“I have seen life from the top down and the bottom up.
I know how it looks both ways. And I know there is wisdom and that there is hope.”
