In cd #1, Folder 4 PDF, starting on page 6, the entire text of the case histories and test results of the Hubbard Dianetics Research Foundation was included amongst the recently obtained FDA declassified records.

This is important information for educational and research purposes.

The booklet, Dianetic Processing: A Brief Survey of Research Projects and Preliminary Results was published in January 1951, by Ibanez, Southon, Southon, & Benton, but copyright L. Ron Hubbard, March 7, 1951.

A description of the booklet (the testing) found in the internet archive:

The preliminary scientific validation of dianetic processing conducted in 1950 by the Hubbard Dianetic Research Foundation (Ibanez, Southon, Southon, & Benton, 1951) used a variety of intelligence and personality tests given before and after processing. A few individual case histories included Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI) profiles, Wechsler intelligence tests, and medical examinations, but the largest sample consisted of eighty-eight students on the professional dianetic practitioner’s course, who were administered a battery of tests at the beginning of their training in August 1950, and again in mid-September.

Pages from Folder 4 Dianetics Processing January 1951 - TOC

Although the pages aren’t the best copies, they are readable. I have extracted the pages from the main FDA records PDF (which is a huge file), OCR’d them, and put them in a separate PDF to make it more accessible to other researchers, historians, and for investigative journalism purposes.
