HCOPL: Doctor Title Abolished
Hubbard abandons his doctor title, although denies that he used it illegitimately.
In protest against the abuses and murders carried out under the title of “doctor” I abandon herewith all my rights and legitimate use of this title as the name has been disgraced.
I was a Ph.D., Sequoia’s University and therefore a perfectly valid doctor under the laws of the state of California.
My beloved grandfather was a doctor and was known as such throughout his life.1
