    (August 25, 1924-November 5, 2006)
    Born in New Orleans, Louisiana
    Founder and Grand Wizard of the White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan (1964)
    Convicted of conspiracy to violate the civil rights of James Earl Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner, who had been murdered for registering black voters in Mississippi
    Served six years in federal prison (1970-76)
    Convicted and sentenced to life in prison for the 1966 murder of civil rights leader Vernon Dahmer (August, 1998)
    He felt the original KKK was not aggressive enough, so he founded his own extra-violent offshoot.
    He was described as having 'a swastika fetish.'
    After the murder of Michael Schwerner, he said it was 'the first time Christians had planned and carried out the execution of a Jew.'
    He masterminded a bombing campaign against Jewish targets in Jackson and Meridian, Mississippi (1967-68).
    He ordered the fatal firebombing of Vernon Dahmer's house.
    In the 60s, he was tried for Dahmer's murder twice and violating Dahmer's civil rights twice; in all four trials, all-white juries deadlocked and failed to convict him.
    He served in the Navy during World War II.
    It took thirty-plus years, but justice eventually caught up to him.
    He died in prison.
