Name  Karl Feller

Karl Feller (August 6, 1914 - February 5, 1981) was an American trade unionist. He was president of the Cincinnati local of the International Union of United Brewery, Flour, Cereal, Soft Drink and Distillery Workers.

During his 1959 visit to the United States, Nikita Khrushchev had the following exchange with Feller:

Khrushchev: "Is that all? Think it over. Drink your beer. Perhaps that will help you to find the answer to your question." Feller: "That certainly is no answer, and apparently nothing will make you understand why millions want to escape from Communism-" Khrushchev: "I've told you, I'm not even afraid of the devil."(1)

Despite his anti-communism, Feller's work landed him on the master list of Nixon political opponents.
