Richard Hamel born Richard Levine in Boston[1] (September 21, 1923-1968) was the founder of the Boston-based American Fascist Union. The group was formed around 1950 and maintained links with Sir Oswald Mosley in Great Britain. After a name change to the American Union Movement both groups lasted only a few months.

In July 1952 Hamel attended a Nationalist Convention in Chicago and boasted that he was mentioned in the recently published ADL book The Trouble-Makers.[2]

In the mid-1960s Hamel supported racial segregation and was associated with the Boston Citizens Council and the United Klans of America. In the 1968 he supported Governor George Wallace for President.

In his early teens he was interested in the political left and was associated with the American Youth for Democracy and the Young Communist League.
