The Awakener was an American right-wing anti-New Deal publication. It was the official publication of The Order of ‘76.[1]

It was founded in 1934 by Harold Lord Varney, and included as editors Lawrence Dennis, Col. Eugene N. Sanctuary, Joseph P. Kamp and Milford W. Howard.[2] Lawrence Dennis removed himself from the publication in 1935. The publication distanced itself from fascism, saying that "The Awakenerer has long been apprehensive that the planless and irresponsible economic experiments which the Roosevelt Administration is carrying out will reduce our national life to such hopeless social disorder that Fascism may be invoked by American conservatives as a last desperate expedient to save the country from Communist revolution. We deplore such a possibility."[3]

The Awakener ceased publication in 1937.[4]
