Loomis, Homer L., 1914-

Biography:

Arrived in Atlanta from his native New York in 1946. "Although his personal history read like a litany of failure--expulsion from Princeton University in New Jersey for drunkenness, two failed marriages, and an unsuccessful stint farming--Loomis fancied himself a leader among men, and he came to the South in order to start a white supremacist movement." Loomis along with Emory Burke and John H. Zimmerlee formed Columbians Incorporated, a neo-Nazi organization, in August 1946 and fostered its agenda of intimidation and harassment of minorities until its state charter was revoked in November 1946. Burke and Loomis were subsequently indicted on charges of inciting to riot and usurping police powers and convicted in February 1947. ("Columbians Incorporated," New Georgia Encyclopedia.
