Richard Hamel born Richard Levine in Boston (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 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.
