This Week in History March 13 Birth Date of Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 11, 2013

This week, millions across the United States and the world will celebrate March 13th as the birth date of author, humanitarian and Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard. Events throughout the week and the rest of March will celebrate the life, works and humanitarian contributions of Mr. Hubbards legacy, recognized by some 4,000 awards, proclamations and recognitions from local, state-wide and national leaders from around the world acknowledging the impact of his contributions for his works as an author, humanitarian or the founder of the Scientology religion.

L. Ron Hubbard was born in Tilden, Nebraska on March 13th 1911 and is widely known as the Founder of Dianetics and Scientology. L. Ron Hubbard also became the nation’s youngest Eagle Scout in 1924, just 2 weeks after his thirteenth birthday.

By the age of 19, he had traveled over 250,000 miles and became a prolific writer of fiction in the 1930s and 1940s, publishing over 138 short stories, novelettes and novels. His writing funded his research into the mind forming the basis of what later became Dianetics and Scientology.

During World War II, he served as Lieutenant in the US Navy where he saw action in the Atlantic and Pacific. He later attributed his Scouting experience to seeing himself safely through the War – precisely as founder of the Scouting movement Baden-Powell had intended.

After the war, L. Ron Hubbard continued his research into the human mind and on May 9th, 1950 Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health was released and has become one of the best selling self-help books of all time. To date over 20 million copies have been sold and is now available in 50 languages. Shortly after Dianetics came the founding of Scientology in 1952 and what has grown into a worldwide movement that has helped people from all walks of life.

This year celebrated the completion of the complete biographical encyclopedia of Mr. Hubbards life The L. Ron Hubbard Series. The series contains 16 volumes documenting his life and works with over 1,000 photographs of and by L. Ron Hubbard, along with 488 artifacts and 241 illustrations. The non-fiction publisher of Mr. Hubbards works has made this new collection available to each public library system throughout the United States. More about the L. Ron Hubbard Series can be viewed online at http://www.lronhubbard.org/books/ron-series/biographical-encyclopedia.html.

New Non-Fiction Release Delves into History of the Commercial Food Canning and Preserving Industry in Northeastern Colorado

Longmont, Colo. (PRWEB) February 21, 2012

This new non-fiction work published by Dog Ear Publishing is an in-depth study of the industrial boom centering on the food canning and preserving industries in dozens of communities in northeastern Colorado from the end of the 19th century to the industrys downfall in the mid-to-late 20th century.

The history of food preservation goes back as far as human memory; every great civilization had at least one method of keeping food from spoiling, but modern canning practices came into being at the very end of the 18th century in France, where the government offered financial compensation to anyone who could come up with a method of preserving food for the military. Chef Nicolas Appert created the method that is still in use today, the method that played a vital role in the industrialization of northeastern Colorado in the 19th and 20th centuries. To the rural residents of Colorado, the canning industry that sprang to life there were a vital source of income, creating a nutritious and delicious source of food for the region. These canneries loomed large until their eventual defeat at the hands of the giants such as Libby, McNeill and Libby, as well as Stokely-Van Camp, companies that continue to serve the entire nations canned food needs. But what of the men and women who helped to foster the boom of industry in Colorado?

John C. Kuners need to support his family after their move to Denver formed the basis of one of the great canning companies in Colorado; pickling vegetables in his home kitchen, Kuner went door-to-door selling his goods to Denver households seeking some variance in their diet during the winter months. Kuner and his brother, Max, eventually formed Kuner Pickle Company, with Max gradually buying his brothers share of the business and building the business into one of Denvers most venerable institutions. John Howard Empson came to Colorado at his doctors urging, seeking a cure for his infected lungs. Empson, a successful businessman in Cincinnati,was inclined to ignore his doctors advice, but he was eventually swayed by his 7-year-old daughter, Alida. Son of a grocer, Empson soon realized the value of canned food, and decided to take advantage of the city dwellers inability to grow their own food. Kuner and Empsons businesses boomed, and both companies spread their canning factories throughout rural Colorado.

Colorados Small Town Industrial Revolution is a fascinating glimpse into a long-ago time, full of vivid portraits of the men and women who helped to build Colorado into the state it is today. Professor emeritus Lee Scamehorn has brought history to life in this, his fifth book. Scamehorn, a graduate of Western Michigan University and the University of Illinois, taught history at the University of Colorado, Boulder.
