-I found another Pre War Reichshauptamtsleiter but I think it is incorrect!!!!! I have a source that lists Hans Pagenkopf as being appointed Reichshauptamtsleiter in (1936), but wouldn't Reichshauptstellenleiter make more since for Pagenkopf? Other men comparable to him like: Guido Harbers, Karl Helmut Patutschnik, and Dr. Heinz Jobst all held the Reichshauptstellenleiter rank instead of the RHAL rank. Can anyone confirm or debunk that Pagenkopf was a Pre-War RHAL der NSDAP?

Dr. Hans Pagenkopf was Reichsamtsleiter der NSDAP.

-I found another Pre-War Hauptamtsleiter!!! Paul Wegener was appointed Hauptamtsleiter im Stab des StdF on (July 11, 1934) and held the rank from (July 11, 1934-August 8, 1936). His Hauptamtsleiter rank must have been nixed as he became the Stellvertreter Gauleiter des Gaues Kurmark on (August 8, 1936).

-I do not have my notes with me at the present time, but I recently reviewed a transmission from (1937) that stated there were to be acht (8) Hauptamtsleiter der Stab des StdF present at the Nuremberg Opera House. From this transmission we can deduce that there was at the bare minimum at least 8 Party members that held the rank of Hauptamtsleiter in the Stab des StdF in (1937). I will give the full date and full transmission later when I have my notes in front of me.

-Friedrich Haselmayr- Reichshauptamtsleiter der Partei
-Rudi Peuckert- (unsure if he was Pre-War)- Reichshauptamtsleiter

-Here is a date for one you already have:

-Albert Bormann- (June 3, 1938)- Reichshauptamtsleiter

Pitino
-I have a correction for Kurt Blome. In "Klinische Wochenschrift" on (April 29, 1939) it announces all of Dr. Conti's new appointments and it also announces that Dr. Kurt Blome was named Stellvertretende Leiter des Hauptamtes für Volksgesundheit der NSDAP. Also, it announces that Blome was promoted to the rank of Hauptamtsleiter der NSDAP. These announcements came on (April 29, 1939), which was before the (May 3, 1939) date that I had above. I am guessing that Blome was officially appointed Hauptamtsleiter der NSDAP on (April 22, 1939), which is the official date that Conti succeeded Gerhard Wagner in all hi posts.

-I think I found the date to Dr. Adolf Dresler being appt. Reichshauptamtsleiter der NSDAP, but it is only the year and not a specific date. Also, If Dresler was appt. RHAL der NSDAP as early as I think, then wouldn't he have held a pretty high NSDAP ranking in the new (Post 1939) rank system (like: Oberbefehlsleiter or Hauptdienstleiter)? If anyone can provide a more specific date for his RHAL appt. or give me his (post 1939) rank then please do so!!!

-Dr. Adolf Dresler- (1935)- Reichshauptamtsleiter der Pressestelle der NSDAP

-According to the 1936 and 1938 Reichstag bio of Fritz Wächtler, he was appointed Hauptamtsleiter bei der Reichsleitung der NSDAP on (December 5, 1935). This is the same date that he was appointed Gauleiter des Gaues Ostmark and made Kommissarischen Leiter des NS-Lehrerbundes. So, he held the rank of Gauleiter and Reichshauptamtsleiter der NSDAP at the same time. His predecessor, Hans Schemm, held the same duel roles prior to being killed in an air crash.

-At the beginning of this thread Dr. Walter Gross was listed as Hauptamtsleiter der NSDAP. Well, I looked and looked for evidence to support this. All I could come up with was that he held the rank of Reichamtsleiter der NSDAP in the Pre-1939 rank structure. His (1936 and 1938 Reichstag bio's) only have him as Reichsamtsleiter der NSDAP. So, I kept digging and I finally found the evidence!!!!!! He was indeed a Pre-1939 Reichshauptamtsleiter der NSDAP!!!! In a transmission on (May 11, 1939) he was referred to as HAL Gross (Leiter des Rassenpolitischen Amtes im Stab des StdF). Does anyone out there know when he was promoted from RAL to RHAL der NSDAP??? It would have to be sometime in between (1938-May 11, 1939).

-Mark,
-Of course the photo was great proof, but I could not read the year of the pic and I wanted to be sure he was a Pre War -Reichshauptamtsleiter!!!! I was positive that he did hold the Reichshauptamtsleiter rank at some point because of your picture, but I thought that it was after 1939.
