Harry Augustus Jung (died November 1954) photo founded the Chicago based American Vigilant Intelligence Federation in 1927 in an attempt to track radicalism among labor union members. After three decades of monitoring radicals and their organizations in America it has been said his files exceeded one million names.[1]

Jung was instrumental in being one of the first to distribute The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion in America. Jung obtained the Protocols from three White Russian expatriates who fled the Bolshevik Revolution and the Civil War with the Red Guards. One of the White Russians was Peter Afansieff who arrived in San Francisco, California in 1922. He and two other White Russians worked on an English translation of the Protocols in Jung’s office.

Jung was a friend of Chicago Tribune publisher Robert R. McCormick, who allowed Jung to have his offices in the paper’s Tribune Tower.

He was the former editor of the Chicago based paper The American Gentile.

Jung was also president of the National Patriotic League.[2]
