[1] Frank Kelly Freas had an unclear relationship with the Church of Scientology. He worked with Bridge Publications and headed up their "Illustrators of the Future" program, but does not appear to have been a full adherent of their dogma. While after his death a memorial was held at the Church of Scientology Celebrity Center in Hollywood, his widow states that Freas was not a Scientologist.
