Rockwell, George Lincoln

(1918-1967) an American neo-Nazi who achieved notoriety out of proportion to the minuscule number of his followers due to his flair for publicity. He founded the American Nazi Party in 1958 and was assassinated by one of his former followers.

He and his "storm troopers" would appear in full Nazi regalia after informing the media in advance. In May 1961, he sent word to the New Orleans Police Department that he intended to picket the premier of the movie "Exodus." In 1967, he was assassinated by one of his discontented followers.
