The American Nationalist Party was a political party started in January 1945 by former US Senator Robert R. Reynolds. The party’s official publication was The National Record: a Washington, DC monthly which Reynolds had been publishing for several years.

The party was active in the cities of Cleveland, Detroit, Pittsburgh and Boston in the Spring of 1945. J. Victor Malone and Joseph E. McWilliams were active fundraisers for the party.

The party lost support when Scripps-Howard Press began to run a series of articles by Eugene Segal in July 1945. The exposé emphasized the party’s relationship with Gerald L. K. Smith and his associates. Reynolds ended the publication of The National Record, with the October 1945 issue.
