Richard M. Nixon was a noted congressman who performed investigations for the House Un-American Activities Committee, and was later elected President of the United States, an office he held until his resignation.
Nixon once served in the United States Navy and remained in the reserve for some time.
On October 17, 1949, Nixon conducted an interview with Navy intelligence officer L. Ron Hubbard. Hubbard disclosed information about rocket engineer Jack Parsons' deep involvement in the occult, involving illicit drug use and "sex magick rituals." Nixon submitted his interview with Hubbard to General Nathan F. Twining on November 12, requesting further investigation.
By 1973, many Haverford College students became critical of Nixon, calling for his prosecution, imprisonment, and even death. On March 29, 1974, Dale Cooper stated his belief that Nixon was involved in a coverup and would most certainly be impeached. The following August, Cooper mailed his Nixon buttons to the White House.
