    This flyer announces an organizational meeting to support the LCFO, emphasizing its informal name, the "Black Panther Party." Huey Newton and Bobby Seale formed their Black Panther Party three months later, on October 15, 1966. Rare with no copies in OCLC (although copies are in the Litwack collection at Yale and the Yuen archive at UC Berkeley). This is one of the first uses of the black panther as a political symbol in the San Francisco Bay Area and directly connects the (mostly white) local SNCC organization with the origins of the Black Power movement.

  • Attention: S T Fiction, Occult & Rocketry Enthusiasts by Madole, James H.
    Madole, James H.
    Attention: S T Fiction, Occult & Rocketry Enthusiasts

    New York: (n.p.), (n.d. but late 1940s). A flyer announcing the formation of "a new national party," perhaps even before it was given its name, the National Renaissance Party (NRP). The NRP, founded in 1949, was a small, but influential neo-Nazi group (called the "most important" in the Encyclopedia of Right-wing Extremism). The group's leader, James Madole, was a science fiction fan and occultist with a deep interest in H. P. Lovecraft and Adolph Hitler.

    This call for supporters targeted a specific subgroup of either older or nerdier science fiction aficionados. STF (pronounced "stef") was short for "scientifiction," the term coined by Hugo Gernsback in 1915 to describe the genre later called science fiction. By the late…

    New York: (n.p.), (n.d. but late 1940s). A flyer announcing the formation of "a new national party," perhaps even before it was given its name, the National Renaissance Party (NRP). The NRP, founded in 1949, was a small, but influential neo-Nazi group (called the "most important" in the Encyclopedia of Right-wing Extremism). The group's leader, James Madole, was a science fiction fan and occultist with a deep interest in H. P. Lovecraft and Adolph Hitler.

    This call for supporters targeted a specific subgroup of either older or nerdier science fiction aficionados. STF (pronounced "stef") was short for "scientifiction," the term coined by Hugo Gernsback in 1915 to describe the genre later called science fiction. By the late 1940s, STF was seldom used, except to refer to strongly science-based works.

    While the NRP would adopt a racist agenda, this flyer emphasizes the formation of "a scientific, advanced society" run by a technocratic Cultural Assembly of 100 men drawn from specialized councils devoted to specific areas of culture and the economy. Madole concludes the leaflet with "this is but a small portion of our new philosophy." The fascist credo would presumably be revealed later.

    Dick Eney, in his Fancyclopedia II (1960) offered a dismissive view of Madole. "Fans were to form the nucleus of this political party ... [It was] the last original stirring of the old save-the-world-by-political-action notion among fans... [Madole] is currently (1959) Führer of the National Renaissance Party, America's only for-real Fascist movement — not counting those like the American Nazi Party, whose 'fascism' is actually racism. The NRP's Bulletin carries the masthead-line "The Only Fascist Publication in America", and Madole still howls regularly up in Yorkville, NY, where there is still an audience for this sort of kookabooism." An extremely scarce and early NRP item. ISBN: 281AIB1028161.

    A few tears and chips; insect residue in upper right. Printed on the back (verso) of a flyer for Anthony More's fantasy story collection, Puzzle Box, suggesting Madole's lack of resources. [JSP01; JHG2019]
