Early life and educationEdit

Salter was born on 31 August 1953 in Sydney, Australia.

Salter attended the University of Sydney (1979 - 1982), where he majored in Government and Public Administration.[1] After his undergraduate education at the University of Sydney he earned a Masters degree and PhD from Griffith University in Queensland (1984-1990).

Extreme-right politicsEdit

During his time as an undergraduate student Salter became active in extreme-right politics. During his time at the University of Sydney he co-founded the fascist youth group Australian National Alliance (ANA) along with neo-Nazi, Jim Saleam. The groups newspaper, Audacity, continues to be published by the Australia First Party, currently run by Saleam.[1]

Salter stood at the 1979 Grayndler by-election for the ANA, which distributed anti-immigrant leaflets and posters that claimed Australia was being “flooded” by refugees.[1] Salter received 1.64% of the vote.[3]

Salter’s academic work has focused on discrediting multiculturalism through “modern biosocial science.” He has advocated philosophy of eugenics, which underpinned Nazism, arguing that racism is genetically ingrained, as opposed to socially constructed.[1]
