Henry B. Krajewski
Henry B. Krajewski (July 15, 1912 - November 8, 1966) was a U.S. politician who ran for President in 1952 (for the Poor Man's Party) and 1956 (for the American Third Party). He was also American Third Party candidate for U.S. Senator from New Jersey in 1954.
Born in Jersey City, New Jersey, he became a pig farmer in Secaucus, New Jersey. In 1952 the six-foot 240-pound Krajewski had 4,000 hogs. With printing-press operator Frank Jenkins as his running mate, his platform included a one-year tax moratorium for every taxpayer with an annual income below $6,000, and one free pint of milk a day in school for every child. He won 4,203 votes. In 1956 his vote dropped to 1,829.
