Say, thanks for this!
I think I just had a "cognition." ;)
I just realized that
Armstrong was actually the predecessor, forerunner, of
CST. And Armstrong has even admitted that he was "working with Hubbard
lawyers in L.A." at the time that he set the archives up. The archives
certainly were never used in a biography, but they certainly did become
core assets of CST. Also, the documents that Armstrong had taken from
Archives: he must have given those to CST at the time of his settlement,
because it was CST who wound up in possession of the Zolin tapes, refusing
to submit them in some later proceeding, I think during Bruggink. And
Gerald Armstrong's settlement was negotiated with CST Special Director
Lawrence E. Heller.
This is all suddenly
very very interesting. I mean even more interesting.
I also just realized
that the chain of custody of the Archives went
directly from Armstrong to Robert Vaughn Young to the Special Directors:
1980-12 December 1981
Robert Vaughn Young: 12 December 1981-28 May 1982
CST Special Directors: 28 May 1982-
And I just fully
realized that Armstrong started setting up those archives
with "Hubbard lawyers in L.A." right at the time Hubbard disappeared.
Very definitely food
for thought and further pursuit. Thank you.
