Don Purcell

Don Purcell

A Wichita business man who had befriended Hubbard and nursed him back to health following Hubbard's divorce scandal. According to A Piece of Blue Sky<, Purcell was "The head of the Omega Oil Company ... a self-made millionaire." Purcell bailed out the Elizabeth (New Jersey) Dianetics foundation and established a new on in Wichita; Purcell was president, and L. Ron Hubbard was vice-president. Shortly afterward, the two men had a falling out. Hubbard began attacking Purcell and threatened to sue him for a million dollars. Ultimately, Purcell gave many of the foundations remaining assets, including copyrights, to Hubbard, and allied himself with Art Coulter's Synergetics instead.
