Howard Benjamin Rand (June 13, 1889 - October 17, 1991) was an attorney, inventor, and the founder of the Anglo-Saxon Federation of America, a British-Israelite religious organization. In 1937 he established Destiny Publishers in his home town of Haverhill, Massachusetts and until 1968 was the editor of their publication The Message of The Covenant, later renamed Destiny Magazine.[1]

Rand graduated from the University of Maine in 1912, where he received the LL.B degree and was a member of Phi Alpha Delta. He passed the bar in Maine and Massachusetts, and served in the Maine National Guard during the great Bangor fire. An inventor, he held many patents, including the electric incandescent lamp in 1916, and the automobile headlamp socket. He held patents in the United States, Great Britain, Australia and France. His book 'Digest of Divine Law' (ISBN-10:10-9101) 1943, was a comprehensive overview of the application of the Divine Law in national life.

Rand was raised a Baptist but later became “non-denominational”.

Rand was assisted by William J. Cameron the public relations executive to Henry Ford. Cameron interpreted the Bible as a racial book and was the first to claim "The Jews are not God’s chosen people."[2] This began the transition of the doctrine of British Israelism into Christian Identity.

He married Hazel Gertrude Smith in 1913.

Rand was three-time candidate for Massachusetts state office on the Prohibition Party ticket.
