Jung, director of the American Vigilant Intelligence Federation; and an Englishman by the name of Strath-Gordon. Two others believed to have attended were Colonel E. N. Sanctuary, head of the American Christian Defenders, and Colonel E. M. Hadley, national president of The Paul Reveres. The formation of a United Front was discussed but little came from the meeting.[5]
  • July 1, 1934 - National convention of Friends of the New Germany




Someday, in the not distant future, the men who are responsible for this (the deliberate attempt to misinform and confuse our people) will be called to account by an aroused and enlightened nation. The attempt to involve our country in war by subterfuge and propaganda is not a crime to be passed over lightly. - Charles A. Lindbergh
  • September 1941 - German American Bund convention in Chicago
  • September 11, 1941 - Lindbergh gives his famous Des Moines, Iowa speech where he identifies the Jews as one group pushing for war.
The three most important groups who have been pressing this country toward war are the British, the Jewish and the Roosevelt administration.




A Nationalist Convention meets in Chicago at the Atlantic Hotel sponsored by Conde McGinley of Common Sense and Lyrl Clark Van Hyning of Women’s Voice. Delegates numbered 179 representing 80 different organizations with various agendas..[45] Those in attendance included Elizabeth Dilling,[46] Col. Eugene Sanctuary, Myron Fagan,[47] F. C. Sammons, William J. O’Brian, Merwin K. Hart, Upton Close, Kenneth Goff, W. Henry MacFarland, Allen Zoll, Jessica Payne, Suzanna S. Stevenson, Cong. Ralph Gwinn, Cong. Howard Buffett, and George Foster who presided over all the sessions.[48]
Gerald L.K. Smith and his associates were noticeably absent from the official Nationalist Convention. Across town Smith was holding a rival convention in the Gold Room of the Congress Hotel and drew a crowd of 500 people.[49] The Smith faction passed a series of resolutions but split as to whether or not to form a third party. A breakaway group of the Smith faction eventually decided to form the Constitution Party officially holding a meeting the next month in August.[50]
A third faction--consisting of a little more than fifty people--also held their convention at the Como-Inn Restaurant and Hall in Chicago sponsored by Joseph Beauharnais of the White Circle League and John W. Hamilton of the Citizens Protective Association with the stated purpose of forming a new organization called the NAAWP: National Association for the Advancement of White People--basically a copy of the NAACP.[51] The new organization was to be formed by the consolidation of several existing groups. The proposed idea failed; however, the following year Bryant Bowles started a NAAWP group on his own in Washington DC. Those in attendance were Peter Xavier of the National Security League, George D. Higgins of the The Liberty Party, Mrs. Ed C. Alumbaugh of The Spider, Richard Hamel,[52] and Daniel Kurtz of New York Anti-Communist League. Other groups represented were the National Patrick Henry Organization, the Christian Civil League of America, and The White Party of America a Chicago-based group affiliated with the White Circle League.

  • February 1, 1969 - National Youth Alliance (anti-Carto faction) meet in Manhattan at the Taft Hotel. C.B. Baker editor of Statecraft and Dennis McMahon NYA National Vice-Chairman spoke at the meeting. Over twenty representatives from nearby colleges attended the meeting.[73] New York City media were present and covered the meeting.
  • June 7-8, 1969 - National convention of the National States Rights Party held in Jacksonville, Florida


The first National Alliance Convention, held here over Labor Day weekend (Sept 2-3), was a real success in building the NA as an organization. Intelligent, serious and dedicated participants came from as far away as California, Texas and Canada.
The Convention program included reports by National Alliance activists, a feature film presentation, a closing banquet dinner, and seven speeches by NA staff members: Mark Weber examined the cultural crisis of our age, and discussed the right of the Alliance to speak for America. Ted O'Keefe analyzed historical lessons for our revolutionary era, and discussed the outlines of the new order the NA is working to build. Nick Camerota's spirited address on the challenge of recruiting was particularly well received.
Dr. William Pierce, head of the Alliance, was greeted before he began his first speech with a standing ovation. The world view of the NA, he said, sees man as part of an organic whole acting in harmony with Nature by contributing to the development of his race. Only a self-consistent spiritual philosophical foundation rooted in natural law, he stressed, can insure that social political changes will be of lasting benefit.
In his "State of the Alliance" address, Dr. Pierce explained why recruiting efforts for the present are aimed at capable and idealistic potential activists and not at "the masses." The Alliance is not yet large enough to reach and help Majority working class victims of the System seeking relief, he said.
Before the Convention ended, many useful suggestions were discussed for recruiting new supporters and improving the monthly newspaper, National Vanguard.
