Who were the important people at the New York church of scientology in 1977? Today I saw the Underground Bunker blog piece with a picture of John Carmichael and it brought back a bunch of memories of when my boyfriend, who joined the sea org, and tried to get me, a non-scientologist, to join. A high-level guy at the NY church sat down with me and tried to get me to join, too. Bit of a dramatic time. Would that possibly have been John Carmichael? He looks familiar.
