American record label formed by Herbert Harris and Irving Prosky for the 1939 World's Fair as Stinson Trading Co. to market and distribute recordings from the Soviet Union in the United States. Between the 1940s and 1960s, it mainly issued recordings of American folk and blues musicians, including Woody Guthrie and Josh White.

From 1942-1946, Stinson Records had a partnership with Asch Records but was dissolved shortly after when Moe Asch formed Disc Records. In 2019, the catalog was acquired by Smithsonian Folkways.
