About the Author
He was born in Chicago, Illinois and had family ties to Michigan. His parents were anglophiles who raised him to appreciate European high culture. Subsequently, Yockey was introduced to classical music through his mother, who studied at the Chicago Musical College. He proved to have a prodigious talent for the piano and developed his repertoire to include Liszt, Beethoven, Chopin, and Haydn.
Over time, Yockey contacted a number of patriotic organizations. These included the German-American Bund, the German-American National Alliance, William Dudley Pelley's Silver Shirts, Sir Oswald Mosley's Union Movement, and James H. Madole's National Renaissance Party. Proponents of universal National Socialism, like Colin Jordan, disagreed with Yockey's view on race, and saw Yockeyism as a kind of "New Strasserism".
Without notes, Yockey wrote his first book, Imperium, in Brittas Bay, Ireland over the winter and early spring of 1948. It is a Spenglerian critique of 19th century materialism and rationalism. It was endorsed by patriotic thinkers around the world including German General Otto Remer, Professor of Classics at the University of Illinois, Revilo P. Oliver, and Italian esotericist Julius Evola. Imperium now plays a fundametnal role in Norman Lowell's nationalist movement of Malta.
Yockey was found dead with an empty cyanide capsule nearby while in a jail cell in San Francisco under FBI supervision, after having been imprisoned for a passport violation.
