    Another ‘Secret Lives’ outtake: The neighbor who knew L. Ron Hubbard and his first wife | The Underground Bunker

    Excerpt:

    We have another previously unseen interview that was recorded for Channel 4’s excellent 1997 documentary, Secret Lives — L. Ron Hubbard.

    This time, we get a glimpse of a time period that rarely gets much treatment — Hubbard’s first marriage, to Margaret “Polly” Grubb, as witnessed by a neighbor who got to know the Hubbards pretty well.

    Previous segments that we’ve released from the Secret Lives files have featured Hubbard’s literary agent, Forrest Ackerman, his press assistant and lover, Barbara Klowden, one of Hubbard’s fellow science fiction colleagues, Arthur Jean Cox, the former mayor of Clearwater, Florida, Gabe Cazares, Hubbard’s former medical officer, Jim Dincalci, archivist Gerry Armstrong, and former Los Angeles Times reporter and postwar Hubbard roommate, Nieson Himmel.

    Now, we have another interview that was filmed for the documentary, but never aired. Meet Washington State Senator Robert MacDonald Ford, who represented the Bremerton area in the 1940s.

    In 1938, he met Hubbard’s mother, May, when he sold her some insurance, and that led him to getting to know Ron and Polly.
