[Note from A. Walter: He discovered an effective cure for
cancer and many other diseases. Was he the greatest hero of the century?
Read on and see what happened. ]
1888 Born in Elkhorn, Nebraska.
1913 Married. Moves to San Diego. A man of
varied interests: ballistics, racing auto constructions, optics and microscopy.
1915-1918. Serves in the Navy. Sent to investigate
foreign laboratories by the U.S. Government.
1920 Begins to investigate the possibilities
of electric treatment of diseases. Timken, owner of Timken Roller Bearing
Co., and Bridges of Bridges Carriage Co., provide funds to establish a laboratory
and to finance his research. Begins research on tuberculosis.
1922 Begins cancer research.
1929 October. Stock market crash. Two weeks
later, Nov. 3, 1929, the San Diego Union carries an article announcing that
Rife has built a microscope capable of staining living viruses with light
to make them visible! (Today this is called bioluminescence.)
1931 Two men join Rife in his work: Dr.
Arthur I. Kendall, Director of Medical Research at Northwestern
University and Dr. Milbank Johnson of Pasadena Hospital.
Dr. Alvin G. Frood, President of the American Association
of Pathologists also becomes active in Rife's research.
1931Nov. 22: L.A. Times
announces the discovery of a "filterable typhoid bacillus" being
light-stained and observed to "change back into non- filterable form",
as seen through a powerful new microscope developed by Royal Raymond Rife
that could directly observe living bacterium and viruses.
1932May 3 & 4. Kendall
speaks before the Assoc. of American Physicians at Johns Hopkins University
telling of the preliminary successes with Rife's methods and treatments.
Dr. Thomas Rivers, virologist and bac-teriologist, Director
of the Rockefeller Institute -- a primary source of funding
for medical research -- and Dr. Hans Zinsser, call Kendall
a liar to his face in front of the assembled crowd.
1932 July 5-7. Dr. Edward C. Rosenow
of the Mayo Clinic's Division of Experimental Bacteriology witnesses Rife's
results and becomes a supporter.
1932 Nov. 30. Rife isolates the filtrable
virus of carcinoma. "Angle of refraction (polarization) 12 3/16 degrees;
length 1/15 micron; breadth 1/20 micron, color by chemical refraction red-purple."
Pleomorphism also established.
1932 By end of the year "Rife can destroy
the typhus bacteria, the polio virus, the herpes virus, the cancer virus
and other viruses in culture and in experimental animals."
1933 Rife completes the "universal microscope."
A resolution of 31,000 times and a magnification of 60,000 times.
1933 July.Dr. Karl Meyer,
Director of the Hooper Foundation for Medical Research of UCSF joins Rife's
1934 Summer: The first cancer clinic using
Rife technology. A special University of Southern California Medical Research
Committee chaired by Milbank Johnson is formed to oversee the research.
Committee members are: Whalen Morrison, Chief Surgeon of
the Santa Fe Railway. George C. Dock, M.D. George
C. Fischer, M.D., Children's Hospital of New York, Arthur
I. Kendall, Dr. Zite, M.D., professor of pathology
of Chicago University. Rufus B. Von Klein Schmidt, President
of USC [University of Southern California].
Also in attendance: Dr. James Couche of San Diego. Dr. Carl Meyer, Ph.D. of the Hooper Foundation, SF. Dr. Kopps of the Metabolic Clinic in La Jolla.
The clinic is held at the Scripps Institute in La
Jolla, California. Sixteen terminally ill people are treated. Fourteen
are cured in three months, the other two are cured in six months.
1935 Rife builds a smaller microscope that
can be mass produced.
May - June: Dr. 0. Cameron Gruner
of Montreal replicates Rife & Kendall's cancer pleomorphism.
June: Four insurance companies are interested
in financing Rife pro- vided the International Cancer Foundation gave
its approval. Dr. Mildred Schram, Secretary of the Foundation,
after visiting Rife's lab, stipulates conditions for acceptance which
have nothing to do with Rife's work. Rife doesn't have time to be sidetracked.
Result: the Cancer Foundation never funds any of Rife's work.
September: A new version of the Rife Frequency
Ray is completed. October: Drs. Walker & Meyer of The Hooper Clinic,
SF, using Rife's microscope and "Beam Ray" replicate his cures.
November: Dr. Johnson opens a second clinic
to test cures with the same incredible results as the first clinic.
1936 June 2: William Donner, President of
the International Cancer Research Institute turns down Johnson's application
for research funds.
1937 July: Rife moves into his new lab on
Alcott St. in Point Loma, built for him by his sponsor, Henry Timkin
1937 September - May: Johnson's third clinic
resulting in the same, identical cures. There is mounting pressure to go
public. But Rife and his academic advisors, being cautious and recognizing
the inevitable resistance from medical orthodoxy, are determined to gather
as much irrefutable and massive statistical evidence as possible.
1937 Drs. Couche of San Diego, Gruner of
Montreal are using Rifes Beam Ray with great success. In the fall Rife hires
an engineer, Phil Hoyland, to help start a company for
manufacturing the Beam Ray.
1938 The Rife Beam Ray Co. is in operation.
Fourteen machines are built. Two go to England, one goes
to Dr. Richard Hamer of the Paradise Valley Sanitarium,
one to Dr. Arthur Yale, two to Arizona doctors, and eight
to Southern California doctors. Dr. Hammer cures an 82-year-old from Chicago
of terminal cancer. Through this man, Morris Fishbein,
head of the AMA in Chicago learns of Rife and his work. Fishbein visits
Rife. Wants to buy in. Rife and his associates turn him down.[This
creates Fishbein's prime revenge motivation for targeting Rife for indictment
and the ultimate destruction of his work]
1938 The J.C Burnett Laboratory in New Jersy
is burnt to the ground. Burnett's wife is a member of the Timken family.
The lab is burned while Burnett and his wife are visiting Rife!
The AMA indicts Rife for fraudulent medical practices.
1938 June 12: Opening day of Rife's trial.
During his testimony, Rife is so nervous he cannot stop shaking. A doctor
recommends he take a drink to calm himself. Rife's alcoholism begins.
During the trial and afterwards the AMA visits all doctors
involved with Rife. "Those who didn't stop using the Frequency Instruments
lose their medical license. Dr. Hamer quickly returns his instrument. Dr.
Gruner returns his. Dr. Couche defies the AMA and his license is re- voked.
Many other doctors associated with Rife turn their backs on him including
Drs. Drood, Rosenow, & Meyer. Rife nevertheless wins the case. The AMA
pays off Kendall in Baltimore "about" $200,000. He goes to Mexico,
1940 Kendall dies.
1944 Milbank Johnson dies under suspicious
circumstances. Two federal inspectors conclude that he was likely poisoned.
Reputedly he was to present the long delayed Rife findings to the AMA the
following day. All Rife's records kept by his academic committee are destroyed.
The committee disbands.
1946 Rife's drinking forces him to sell off
his lab piece by piece. He is committed for "alcohol rehabilitation."
1948 Drs. Virginia Livingston-Wheeler &
Eleanor Alexander-Jackson, micro- biologists in Philadelphia prove that
the cancer virus "is in actuality a pleomorphic bacterium."
1949 Dr. Virginia Livingston becomes the
head of New Rutgers Presbyterian Laboratory in Newark, NJ.
1949 June 6: Morris Fishbein is ousted by
the AMA at its Atlantic city convention. Reason: years of advertising fraud
and fund stealing.
1950 Rife is released from rehabilitation
and returns to work. He forms a partnership with John Crane,
an engineer/scientist. Crane "re-invents" the Beam Ray and hires
Verne Thomson, an electronics expert with the San Diego
police force, to help construct the new machines.
Dr. Irene Corey Diller of the Institute for
Cancer research in Philadelphia isolates fungus agents from cancer growths.
Unknowingly she has replicated Rife and Gruner's work. She sets up a symposium
in New York in order to announce her discovery. It is killed by Dr.
Cornelius P. Rhoads, the head of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer
Dr. James Hillman of RCA Labs in Princeton.
NJ, later confirms the Livingston-Wheeler-Gruner-Rife pleomorphism.
1953 Dr. Diller publishes her discovery:
Studies of Fungoid Form Found in Malignancy. Dr. Livingston-Wheeler presents
her own discoveries to the 6th International Congress of Microbiology in
Rome. Sep. 10: The Washington Post reports. "The New York Academy of
Medicine immediately discounts the announcement." Dr. Rhoads of Memorial
Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center stops all funds for the Rutgers-Presbyterian
Hospital Laboratory. The lab is closed, putting Dr. Livingston-Wheeler out
1954 Dr. Livingston-Wheeler moves to San
Diego, taking a job with a clinic. The Committee on Cancer Diagnosis and
Therapy of the National Research Council "evaluate" Rife's discoveries
and conclude that "they couldn't work." (Please note: never at
any point, and to this date, no orthodox cancer agency has tested Rife's
Rife, under Crane's insistence, copyrights a description of
his cancer cure.
1958 Jan: A group of Salt Lake City doctors
begin using the Rife Frequency machine. In May the Salt Lake City Medical
Board forces them to stop using it.
The California Public Health Dept. holds a hearing. A Frequency
Instrument had been provided for testing to the Palo Alto Detection Lab.,
the Kalbfeld Lab., the UCLA Medical Lab. and the San Diego Testing Lab.
All declared that it was safe to use. Result: The AMA Board under the Calif.
Director of Public Health, Dr. Malcolm Merrill declares it unsafe and bans
it from the market.
1958 July 14. Or Virginia Livingston-Wheeler
is the first speaker at the 1st International Congress of Microbiology and
Leukemia in Antwerp, Belgium. She discovers that the pleomorphism of cancer
is widely accepted in Europe while ignored in the U.S.
1958 November: After six months of testing
Rife's technology, Dr. Robert Stafford of Dayton, Ohio, presents his findings
to the Executive Committee of the General Practice Section of the Montgomery
County Medical Society of the AMA. The committee is impressed. They set
up a research committee from Dayton's most influential doctors.
1959 Dr. Clara Fonti of Milan, Italy "innoculates
herself with a bacterial culture of cancer. She grows a tumor, later surgically
removed. Thereby proving pleomorphism as a factor in human cancer.
Dr. Livingston-Wheeler meets her neighbor Royal R. Rife.
1959-1960 Dr. Livingston & Rife work
together. She arranges for the Institute of Cancer Research in Philadelphia
to provide Rife with mice. Their view on pleomorphism are much the same.
The only difference is that Dr. Livingston intends to develop a serum while
Rife knows the virus dis-integrates under his Beam Ray.
1960 John Crane writes and copyrights a manual
explaining how the Frequency Instrument is to be used. Dr. Stafford of Dayton
suggests that he, Stafford, manufacture and distribute the machine in the
USA. Crane decides to license the machine to prevent doctors from changing
it, thus failing to get results. Ninety machines are distributed "for
research and verification on notorized contracts."
1960The AMA and the FDA strike.
Crane's office is raided. $40,000 in equipment is taken along with all engineering
data, research records and reports, pictures off the wall, private letters,
invoices, tape recordings, electronic parts. All without a search warrant!
Doctors who have the machines are visited and forced to give them up. Ordinary
citizens who have begun experimenting personally are threatened. One woman
is hospitalized from shock by the AMA raid.
Rife and Crane are arrested and released on bail. Rife, almost
73, unable to handle more abuse, goes into hiding in Mexico.
1961 Spring. John Crane's trial lasts 24
days. "The records and materials seized are not allowed to be used
by Crane in his own defense. . . Rife's deposition is not permitted to be
introduced." The foreman of the jury is an AMA doctor; the balance
of the jury is screened to make sure they have no medical nor electronic
knowledge. "No medical reports from the 30's and 40's are admitted.
Neither are other doctor's reports. Nor is a Frequency Instrument demonstrated
much less admitted into court. "The only medical opinion offered by
the State of California is from Dr. Paul Shae who had been given a Frequency
Instrument by the Public Health Department 2 months before the trial. Shea
admits he never tried (it) or made tests to evaluate it. He simply examined
it and decided that it had no curative powers and didn't lend itself to
Crane is found guilty and sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Later the State Supreme Court, on appeal, reverses two of the three counts
against Crane "because no specific criminal intent had been proven."
Crane spends three years and one month in jail. After Crane's imprisonment
Dr. Stafford of Dayton is forced to give up his instrument and to give up
medicine. A Salt Lake City Doctor's instrument was sabotaged and he was
so hounded by the orthodox medical authorities that he commits suicide.
1962 Dr. Livingston has a heart attack. She
Kefauver amendments to the Food and Drug Act of 1938 grant
to the FDA the right to determine if a drug is effective. Safety is no longer
a prime consideration. Drug treatment effectiveness and safety is there-by
taken out of the hands of the doctor and his patient.
1964 John Crane is released from prison.
He begins the fight all over again. 1965 October: Crane submits an application
to the Calif. Board of Public
Health for approval of the Frequency Instrument. "The
application is made in the name of Rife Microscope Institute," John
Crane, owner. The Health Department answers that Crane must first show the
instrument to be effective.
Dr. Charles W. Bunner, Chiropractor, agrees
to provide "proof of effectiveness." The Calif. Department of
Health pays him a visit and forbids him to use the instrument, and present
him with a court order to have it destroyed.
Dr. Les Drown, Chiropractor, provides a statement.
An American Cancer Society representative subsequently forces him to "sign
over" his Frequency Instrument or go to jail. (Rife's cancer discoveries
are never patented.) Rife returns from Mexico.
1966 Dr. Livingston and her old colleague,
Dr. Eleanor Alexander-Jackson present a paper at an American
Cancer Seminar in Arizona. When Dr. Alexander-Jackson returns to Columbia
University she discovers that she and her work have been terminated.
1968 Dr. Livingston and her husband open
a clinic in San Diego.
1968-1983 They treat over 10,000 cancer patients
utilizing her serum and a high immune-building diet. An 80-percent success
rate. (The State of California Department of Health has subsequently tried
to shut down her clinic. They have also outlawed the use of her serum. ---Personal
communication from the Livingston Medical Center.)
1969 March 4: Rife signs ownership of his
microscope over to John F. Crane. It is Crane who preserves all of Rife's
work that remains.
1969 Nov. 5-8: Drs. Livingston, Alexander,
Diller and Dr. Florence Seibert from the Veterans Administration Research
Laboratory in Bay Pines, Florida present a paper: Microorganisms Associated
1970 Oct. 30: Their paper is published.
1970Rife dies. He has been
hospitalized for intoxication. Records show he is given an extra (overdose)
of Valium. A mixture of Valium and alcohol is lethal. He is 84.
1971 December 23: President Richard Nixon
signs a $1.6 billion law to open the "war on cancer."
1972 Dr. Livingston publishes her first book:
Cancer: A Breakthrough. She condemns the NCI for its misuse of money and
"the use of people as guinea pigs for a 'surgery-radiation-chemotherapy'
program dictated by special interests."
1973 The Supreme Court rules that the FDA
"can decide without a hearing which evidence it would allow."
1980 "The AMA is found guilty by a U.S.
Court of Appeals of 'conspiracy to restrain competition. . . New methods
of health care have been discouraged, restricted and in some instances eliminated."'
1985 The Sloan-Kettering Cancer Institute
finds the Rife-Livingstone-etc. organism (virus) in all blood cultures of
cancer patients. They conclude that the organism comes from outside contamination
and bury the report.
1984 Dr. Livingston publishes The Conquest
1985 By this time the National Cancer Institute
is spending $1.2 billion dollars annually for cancer. This does not count
the monies raised by the American Cancer Society.
1988 Rife Labs is formed to revitalize Rife's work.
1990 It is estimated that $50 billion dollars
have been spent on the "War on Cancer." Twenty percent of this
money is spent on actual research. Dr. Virginia Livingston-Wheeler dies.
1996 June: John Crane dies totally destitute
in San Diego County. (Personal communication from the Cancer Research Organization.)
1998 May: Nothing has changed as of this
writing. Rife Frequency Treatments are illegal except for experimental purposes.
It reputedly cures AIDS but the frequencies are absolutely forbidden to
be used even for experimental purposes in the United States only. The existence
of the Black Field microscope continues to be denied by orthodox medicine
as is the pleomorphism of bacteria/viruses. The suppression of alternative
cancer treatments remain in full force and now also includes Hydrazine Sulfate.
Just last year the FDA raided and demolished the San Diego
offices of American Biologics whose clinic in Tijuana uses alternate cancer
