Alan, if memory serves me right, I believe you are referring to the June Lake / John Goth era around 1973.
In 1975 there were 3 or 4 sups, a couple auditors, a couple of C/Ses, and maybe about seven or eight people in Qual - Mike Smith was the Qual Sec - the academy was really full.
That's my memory as dim as it is.
There were easily 100 admin staff though - tech - admin ratio being way out of kilter.
It may have been earlier - I had 4 Missions in that general area...Columbus, Cincinnatti, Toledo, Ohio and Birmingham, Michigan. I was looking for a good Org to send my students and staff to for Class IV level training.
Barry may have just taken over, he had just finished the FEBC. June Lake was not there.
I knew June well as I had sponsored and got her to emigrate from Geelong, Australia in 1967, to work in St Louis when I owned it. Back then we had as many as 800 students on course and was delivering around 5-600 hours auditing weekly.
