It is now making plans for
its second convention, with
dates variously announced
as Aug. 1-3 and the Labor
Day weekend. At last year's
inaugural meeting, one of
the main speakers was Ar-
thur R. Butz, author of "The
Hoax of the Twentieth Cen-
tury," published in 1976.

cal engineering at North-
western University.

cause of disease.
Other speakers included
Dr. Austin J. App, a former
associate professor of
English at LaSalle College
in Philadelphia, who has
been a Nazi apologist since
the 1940s. One of the ear-
liest purveyors of
Holocaust-denial prop-
aganda, he was the author
of a 1966 American Mer-
cury article titled "That
Elusive Six Million."
At the convention, App
claimed that anti-German
"vengeance" since World
War II stemmed from
"Zionist and Communist
agitation about the Third
Reich's alleged extermina-
tion of the Jews."
Another
convention
speaker was Udo Walendy,
head of a "German re-
visionist publishing house,"
according to Finger. A self-
proclaimed expert in
analyzing "faked" photo-
graphs, Walendy claimed
that virtually all photo-
graphs of death camp at-
rocities are hoaxes.
Finger said that in an
attempt to give the insti-
tute and its journal an
aura of scholarship, an
offer is made to enter up
to four gift subscriptions
to the journal to the lib-
raries of the donor's
choice. Other institute
incentives to encourage
membership, he said, in-
clude free copies of
Holocaust revisionist
works.
The institute's mailings
and announcements are
signed by "Lewis Brandon,"
identified as "director" of
the institute. He is also
listed as office manager of
Noontide Press, a Carto op-
eration in Torrance, Calif.,
which turns out racist and
anti-Semitic books, accord-
ing to ADL.
ADL hoped that exposing
and documenting the anti-
Semitic nature of the Insti-
tute for Historical Review
would prevent reputable
groups and institutions
from being misled as was
the Organization of Ameri-
can Historians and North-
rop University.
