Herman Bruck was a Socialist wardheeler on the Lower East Side of New York City in the early 20th century. He had an unrequited crush on fellow Socialist Flora Hamburger.

Bruck was injured in the Remembrance Day Riots of 1915, when a man wearing a heavy Soldiers' Circle ring punched out a tooth.

In 1916, when Congressman Myron Zuckerman died, Bruck announced his candidacy to challenge Daniel Miller. He was defeated in the Socialist caucus by his crush, Flora Hamburger. Despite his disappointment at having been defeated, Bruck enthusiastically campaigned for Flora, planting his cousin to heckle Miller at the two candidates' debate.

After Hamburger's election, Bruck remained in the Upper East Side for the rest of his career. He was still working on Flora's campaign as late as 1944. By that time, he was married with children, and he and Flora were both faintly bemused when they remembered his youthful infatuation with her.
