Matthias "Matt" Koehl, Jr. (January 22, 1935 – October 9/10, 2014) was an American Marine, a Neo-Nazi politician and writer. He succeeded George Lincoln Rockwell as the leader of the American Nazi Party 1967-2014.

Like the Chilean diplomat Miguel Serrano, Koehl was influenced by the occultism of the Greek-French writer Savitri Devi. He was also a close friend of the Dutch World War II Nazi collaborator Florentine Rost van Tonningen.

Biography[edit]

Born on January 22, 1935, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, United States, to Hungarian immigrants of German descent, Koehl studied journalism at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee[1] and served in the United States Marine Corps.

Koehl died in the night between October 9 and 10, 2014, at the age of 79.[2]

Politics[edit]

Matthias Koehl joined James Madole's National Renaissance Party, the United White Party, and the National States' Rights Party, before joining the American Nazi Party in 1960.

In August 1967, formerly a Deputy Commander,[3] Koehl succeeded the assassinated George Lincoln Rockwell as Commander of the National Socialist White People's Party, known until December 1966 as the American Nazi Party.[4] In 1983, Koehl renamed the organization "New Order". At the end of his life, Koehl was[when?] the leader of the World Union of National Socialists, despite his affiliation with Esoteric Nazism, having alienated some members.[citation needed]

Although maintaining a low public profile, Koehl granted an interview to mainstream writer William H. Schmaltz in Arlington, Virginia, in April 1996 during the preparation of Schmaltz' biography of George Lincoln Rockwell.
