Fred W. Halstead (April 21, 1927 – June 2, 1988) was an American politician who was a candidate for President of the United States of the Socialist Workers Party in 1968. His running mate was Paul Boutelle.
Halstead played a very significant role in the movement against the Vietnam War. Some feel for this can be found in his book on the movement, Out Now! He also was a staff writer of The Militant, the publication of the Socialist Workers Party, the main Trotskyist group in the United States.
